I wasn't aware of any limitation of IO per LUN on HP-UX. Can you
provide more details?

I'm not sure about the Metalun term, but I believe some operating systems
(e.g. HPUX) have internal restrictions on the I/O throughput per LUN, so you
might just want to double check to see if your OS (or any other component in
the I/O stack) implements this type of limitation, in which case it would be
a good idea to present multiple, smaller LUNs to the OS rather than one big
LUN.  The best way to know for sure is to test - use dd or something similar
to see what is the max IOPS you can get on a single LUN vs. two LUNs on the
same disk array.
