Basically, you've got too many subdirectories of /srv/5/node/sdb4/objects for the underlying filesystem to handle.

You didn't mention anything about your setup, but I'm going to guess you've got a part power of 17 or more, a very small number of disks in your system, and that the filesystem on your data disks is ext3/ext4, not XFS. Fix any one of those things, and the problem should go away.

Thank you for your quick response.
Installed swift on a system with XFS filesystem. Will update with the status once we reach this limit.
