Subtitle- Tuning GFS for 10g ?  

I am in the final testing stages of a RedHat 5.1 active / passive cluster, using GFS and The database is fairly large. I am seeing very poor performance, apparently due to disk i/o issues and I cannot pin it down to the cause. Its connected via 4gb SAN, and AWR is reporting datafile service times that range from 10ms to over 80ms, which is very poor. However, the backend SAN is reporting much better service times.  

Disk I/O seems to be far worse than a non-GFS system- perhaps up to 10 times worse. My feeling is that it is something odd with GFS. Has anybody run into performance problem with 10g on GFS ?
