Have you considered raid 10 configuration? It will about halve the storage space but increase IO by a multiple.
You could flip the cover and see if the disks are pushed hard by the controller (leds on the 3ware controller). Although from what you described above it's probably a directory growing a bit on the large side.
In narrowing down the problem, it seems that one particular (large) directory is the main culprit. This dir is 471,401,788 KB big and has 3,377,520 files (~140KB/file average). Is the large number of files the entire culprit? If so, is there anything I can do to alleviate the problem? I already 'mount -o logbufs=8'. Here's xfs_info on that partition:
Perhaps creating the filessystem with a larger inode size like 512. You could also use version logs instead of version which mostly helped software raid 5 although this might help hardware as well.
