cLVM2 pretty much gets out of the way, except for the
adminstrative/management tasks like adding/deleting/resizing LVs. It has
almost no measurable impact on the IO latency/throughput of the LVs.

It is more likely you're looking at a bandwidth/latency problem on the
iSCSI side. Is the connection clogged? Server side overloaded? Network?
