Hm.  I didn't set this up.  I'll have to check.

I've mainly been using Glance which shows a lot of queued requests for
the disks in question.

Here's currently what we have in /etc/system related to ufs:

  set ncsize                      =   257024
  set autoup                      =       90
  set bufhwm                      =    15000
  set tune_t_fsflushr             =       15
  set ufs:ufs_HW                  = 16777216
  set ufs:ufs_LW                  =  8388608

No, they are on the same volume.

Nothing too scientific other than the fact that since we have moved
the DB, we consistenly see a large number of postmater processes
(close to 100) where before we did not.
