After all, it's still SCSI: The OS will not send an arbitrary number of 
(which would be TCP segments) unless previous requests have been answered. One 
the reasons may be write ordering of data and metadata. An interesting 
would be the size of the SCSI tagged queue size and the number of unanswered 
requests in case of massive random read (or write) operations.

I know that the host driver of the Adaptec aic7xxx could display the maximum 
size as well as the used queue size, but I haven't checked for iSCSI (I'm not 
using an Adaptec HBA any more).
