I've gotten good results going direct to the Linux AIO calls, but before
you go too far from your existing code base, are you using a single file
descriptor with the librt aio_*() routines? If so, that may be part of
your problem, as the library will serialize requests to the same fd. I
just pre-dup()'d the descriptor for each of the (max 32) requests I'd
have in flight for a toy stress-tester I wrote. With 10240 requests,
that may be a bit excessive, but it'd point out if that was part of the
problem fairly quickly.
