[linux-lvm] tps for block device vs lvm device



Why would I see 50x the amount of transactions on the lvm volume vs the actual underlying block device ?
 
avg-cpu:  %user   %nice %system %iowait  %steal   %idle
           0.00    0.00   11.41   57.07    0.00   31.51
Device:            tps    MB_read/s    MB_wrtn/s    MB_read    MB_wrtn

211 tps versus 14365 tps.  The box is idle and the following command was running:
 
dd if=/dev/sdb of=/home/xxxxxxx/bigrandomfile.txt bs=4k count=10000000
