Here are the overall stats:

Total (sda):
 Reads Queued:       8,864,   35,456KiB	 Writes Queued:          90,    7,980KiB
 Read Dispatches:    8,864,   35,456KiB	 Write Dispatches:       49,    7,980KiB
 Reads Requeued:         0		 Writes Requeued:         0
 Reads Completed:    8,864,   35,456KiB	 Writes Completed:       59,    7,980KiB
 Read Merges:            0,        0KiB	 Write Merges:           41,      164KiB
 IO unplugs:            81        	 Timer unplugs:           0

so almost all reads, and no read merges; almost 35 megabytes read and every
one was a small 4k IO.

It's doing about 120 seeks/second.  I'm a little surprised that there was no read

Let me think about this. :)
