Can you give me a rough idea of what the actual workload is and how it
is distributed amoung the director(y/ies) ?

This is often down to contention on glocks (one per inode) and maybe
because there is a process of processes writing a file or directory
which is in use (either read-only or writable) by other processes.

If you are using php, then you might have to strace it to find out what
it is really doing,
