I'm not saying it's not possible, but are you sure this slowdown is caused by the disk? It's certainly a possibility, but I would like to make sure
it's caused by that before jumping into conclusions.

Can you load the full database in RAM and perform the same test. TBH, I don't use MariaDB, so I'm not sure what's the best way to achieve this, but a quick search on google shows there are multiple ways. In any case, make
sure with iostat that the database is not read from the disk.

I'll try to do some disk-benchmarks, when I can attach some bigger disks.

on Ubuntu 14 with HVM:

dc3dd wipe=/dev/xvdc

dc3dd 7.1.614 started at 2016-08-17 09:38:17 +0200
compiled options:
command line: dc3dd wipe=/dev/xvdc
device size: 104857600 sectors (probed)
sector size: 512 bytes (probed)
53687091200 bytes (50 G) copied (100%), 464.642 s, 110 M/s

input results for pattern `00':

output results for device `/dev/xvdc':
   104857600 sectors out

On FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p6 with HVM:

Aug 17 09:57:52 bla-prod kernel: xbd4: 51200MB <Virtual Block Device> at device/vbd/51776 on xenbusb_front0
Aug 17 09:57:52 bla-prod kernel: xbd4: features: write_barrier
Aug 17 09:57:52 bla-prod kernel: xbd4: synchronize cache commands enabled.

dc3dd wipe=/dev/xbd4

and it's showing 8.something MB/s

Is this normal?
What may I be doing wrong?
