Hi Alan,

Are you using GFS1 or GFS2 ?

If you are using GFS1, try to use GFS2, GFS1 will be deprecated and GFS2 has a lot of "auto-tuning" parameters as default and the performance is better as well.
So, try to look at this document:

http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5.4/html/Global_File_System_2/s1-manage-atimeconf.html

see ya
