The above says gfs not gfs2. I'd suggest using the noatime mount option
unless you really need atime support. Using atime is likely to make many
operations a lot slower.

The stats you've listed don't really tell us much. The question is what
the workload is, how the files/directories are layout out, and how they
are being accessed from each node,
