    I am unconvinced. If you take ~1MB/s for each active drive, add in SCSI
    overhead, 45M/sec seems reasonable. Have you look at a running iostat
    while all this is going on? Try it out- add up the kb/s from each drive
    and see how close you are to your maximum theoretical IO.

    Also, how's your CPU utilization?
