slow performance on MSA1000

hi all,
I have got a small cluster with 2 ML570G3 with QLA HBA (281541-B21); MSA1000 (201723-B22); MSA Fabric Switch 2/8(Includes 4 2Gb SFF-SW Trnsvr (288247-B21) with 5 HDD 72GB 15K U320 UNI HDD (286778-B22)

I run RH3.0, this is the boot message
qla2x00_detect num_hosts=0

the system have a very bad IO performance. the system run Oracle EBS 11.5.10. when a request run, the io is about 60-70 % which lead to a very low performance application.

please help me
thanks in advance

Re: slow performance on MSA1000

Just a thought. What cluster size did you choose when you setup the array ?

Re: slow performance on MSA1000

thank Mike,
I am using ocfs1, I do not know how to find information cluster size and block size. but I think the default cluster size is 4K and block size is 128 bytes.
the fie attached is the ocfstool show
and this is blockdev ouput
root@oracle1 root]# blockdev --report
RO RA SSZ BSZ StartSec Size Device
