Started "dd if=/dev/zero of=/path/to/aoe/disk bs=1M count=100000" on
each dom0 at the same time and accumulated performance of each

All the 8 dd-processes gave me a total throughput 1386 MB/s in the sum.

Yeah - i know, that dd is not really representative for every
application, but in my case the setup is built for scientific data
processing and so it is representative in my case.

The Amount of written Data the Storage-Header processed each second - as
said it s scalable in any way. Just wait for the drawing and you will
understand why ;)
