I partitioned my 5 disk stripe into 2 partitions and
ran the tar/du/rm test from 2 ext3 file systems from
2 nodes simultaneously.

It looks like the tar time from 2 ext3 file systems to 
the same 5 disk stripe is taking twice as long.  The
du and rm times are almost the same as 1 ext3 file system
on the 5 disk stripe alone.
