actually I have since found a decoder ring here - http://xfs.org/index.php/Runtime_Stats and have been incorporating a lot of the data so I can look at things in real time.  I'd still love to know why writing 1000 1K files results in 200MB/sec of disk I/O though.  clearly something weird is going on. both PCP as well as collectl (now that I have incorporated some of the counters) are both telling me that I/O is in the logging, but why remains a mystery.  can anyone offer some suggestions as to why?

Using Performance Co-Pilot, "pminfo -T xfs" will give you the answers you seek.
