Hard disk bottle neck.

The reason I use RAID5 because I don't want to waste too much space on redundancy whilst taking the advantage of read. Over 99% of disk access are expected to be reading.
I could split to 2xRAID5 but I will have difficulty with file management later. Furthermore, the system would use 2 disks for parity. I don't want to lose too much space. 300GB at 10K SCSI disks are still very expensive. :(

do you check gstat?
If the patch dont works, maybe yoy may try to split the raid (2 raid
5) or better use a raid 10. The raid 5 isnt a top performance raid.
