But 6.x and 7.x give similar results.

The disks themselves are capable of sequential read/write in the 180 Meg/sec range, so I'm trying to understand why I'm being told they are 100 Meg/sec, and why that seems to be their real world performance cap.

probably you use RAID5

Hrmm, I should have included drive configuration.

But I get similar results when I connect just a single SAS drive and export it as a raw device. It's also worth noting that the SATA drive array is reported as 100MB/sec transfers, even though the drives aren't capable of anything close to that, unless they are reading from cache, in which case SATA2 is capable of more like 300MB/sec...but then so is SAS...
