A quick call to 3ware and they told me to increase vfs.read_max from  
8 to 256. That helped. I'm now seeing 4x performance on a four-drive  
array vs a single drive. Additionally, Ivan was right about the  
database being too small. iostat showed no disk activity after the  
initial run, as everything was cached in memory.
