Extremely slow small files rewrite performance

I just built a new cluster using this quickstart instructions:

And here is what I am seeing:

# time for i in {1..10}; do echo $i > $i.txt ; done
real 0m0.081s
user 0m0.000s
sys 0m0.004s

And if I try to repeat the same command (when files already created):

# time for i in {1..10}; do echo $i > $i.txt ; done
real 0m48.894s
user 0m0.000s
sys 0m0.004s

I was very surprised and then just tried to rewrite a single file:

# time echo 1 > 1.txt
real 0m3.133s
user 0m0.000s
sys 0m0.000s

BTW, I dont think it is the problem with OSD speed or network:

# time sysbench --num-threads=1 --test=fileio --file-total-size=1G
--file-test-mode=rndrw prepare
1073741824 bytes written in 23.52 seconds (43.54 MB/sec).

Here is my ceph cluster status and verion:
