yes this is what I meant although did not convey in the best terms.  This
is working fine in testing but my main concern was having multiple volumes
i/o hitting the same disks as a potential bottleneck.  What I think I have
settled on is not to subpartition the LVM/Physical disks but create
seperate bricks from seperate RAID volumes on each server such that I can
isolate I/O for many clients without losing the ability to scale the
filesystem--one volume per brick, multiple bricks.

thanks guys
