Thanks for this info. We actually run the "noop" scheduler for the SAN
storage (as per menufacturer's recommendation), because on "disk" is actually
spread over up to 40 disks.
Other settings we changes was:
queue/max_sectors_kb:128 (manufacturer's recommendation, before up to 1MB
transfers were seen)
And we apply those setting (where available) the the whole stack (disk
devices, multipath device, LV).
