Re: [dm-devel] Size affects performance?

The difference might be caused by internal block size,
which kernel optimizes depending on the device size alignment.
The smaller the block size, the larger the number of I/Os sent
to the device (when you read/write /dev/something).

So you might want to check the block size ("blockdev --getbsz")
and see if it's related to your case.
