What strategy are you using to sort inside RAIDframe?  This is a property
of the RAID set; you can see it with raidctl I believe for autoconfigured

I wouldn't be terribly surprised to see bad interactions between
priocscan and RAIDframe's scan or cscan strategies.  What about the "fifo"

It's important, though, to understand that there are *very* few pure bulk
read applications in this world (except single-stream video) and very
few pure bulk write applications except database logs.  That means that
single-stream pure read or write tests are really pretty awful predictors
of disk performance for real workloads.

The "priocscan" strategy, in particular, limits pure read/pure write
performance *by design* in order to achieve lower latency under real
world mixed workloads.  I would not be so quick to discard it -- though I
would not use it on something like an SSD, and I am skeptical it would
perform well when stacked on one of RAIDframe's elevator-sort variants.
