Hi, 

I have a 600GB xfs file system mounted that suddenly started running slow on
writes.  It takes about 2.5 to 3.5 seconds to write a single file.  Some
folders (with less number of files) work well.  But it will copy fast, then
slow for long periods of time.  This is a virtualized CentOS 5.9 64 bit box
on Citrix Xenserver 5.6SP2.  Doesn't seem to be a load i/o issue as most of
the load is system%.  My fragmentation is less than 1 %.    Any help would
be greatly appreciated.  I was looking to see if there was a better way to
mount this partition or allocate more memory, whatever it takes.  The
folders are image folders that have anywhere between 5 to 10 million images
in each folder.

Thanks

Fstab mount is: 
/dev/xvdb1              /images xfs
defaults,nodiratime,nosuid,nodev,allocsize=64m 1 1
