btw, it does not harm to use "even" numbers here, like 20000 or 15000...

no. more concern about your write cache in the cciss controller,
and whether it lies to the kernel about having written stuff to disk
when in fact it is only in that (probably not battery backed?) write

different io-scheduler may have a big impact here, too.
or other defaults in the cciss driver module.
