Thanks for the early returns ;-) Some more information:
We're running Linux RHAS 2.4. Our metadata in our production system is on a
1+0 RAID local hard disk. We have lots of memory and we're just running
single-user benchmarks, so swapping is highly unlikely.
Our current theory (still work in progress) is that a RAM-SAN is great for
random access, but Perforce does a lot of large sequential disk accesses,
which are already optimized for hard disks, so the bottleneck may be the I/O
