[lustre-discuss] Removing large directory tree

I understand that doing recursive file operations can be taxing on lustre.
So, I wonder if there is a preferred performance-minded way to remove an entire directory tree that is several TB in size.
The standard rm -rf ./dir seems to spike the cpu usage on my OSSes where it sits and sometimes causes clients to be evicted.
