Solaris 9, veritas 3.5, hitachi san. Mount points look like:

/u01 on /dev/vx/dsk/rootdg/u01
read/write/setuid/delaylog/largefiles/qio/ioerror=mwdisable/dev=3d40005 on Thu Mar 18 23:25:59 2010
/u02 on /dev/vx/dsk/rootdg/u02
read/write/setuid/delaylog/largefiles/qio/ioerror=mwdisable/dev=3d40006 on Thu Mar 18 23:26:04 2010
/u03 on /dev/vx/dsk/rootdg/u03
read/write/setuid/delaylog/largefiles/qio/ioerror=mwdisable/dev=3d40007 on Thu Mar 18 23:26:09 2010

filesystemio_options = asynch

For what its worth, 32gb server, 12gb sga, 7gb pga aggregate target, we're always maxed out on RAM and swap, and our iowait, during business hours, hovers around 25-30%.
