Normally when things run slow, you are using a SAN. If things are fast, you are local disks.If that really is your expectation, then I think you need to look at your SAN configuration for performance issues. Generally the access to disks on a storage array are faster than access to local disks. Write-cache is wonderful stuff when you can get it.

By using df -k, how can I tell whether a system is using a SAN device versus having everything on local drives? If it is all logical drives, wouldn't all of the mount points start out with something like /dev/lvm0/ and then be sliced up among Logical Volumes?
