[linux-lvm] LVM & high system load



Hi, 

I am newbie to LVM. I am experiencing high cpu load (system time > 90%)
and
relatively poor IO perf. (my cpu is only PII 333) on LVM volumes. I have 
tested reiserfs and ext2fs and I only get about 2.5Mb/s with 100% CPU
load,
mostly system time.

Due to some failures of vgscan (no volume found) and vgchange (core
dumps,)
I had to upgrade my 2.4.3 kernel to LVM beta7 and also the system tools.
Now
it seems that theses tools work but I still have very high loads, much
higher than what I would have on a fs lying on a partition.

My logical volumes are not stripped.

Is this a known issue ? 

Thanks in advance,

DL
