There's multiple reasons such things could be happening and though both of you see similar symptoms the underlying causes may be different. I highly suggest opening cases with Red Hat Support if you are Red Hat customers.

As far as what it could be... well, there's a lot to pick from. One thing that comes to mind is:


But that depends on the size of the file being written vs. rgrp size. Lock contention is also a possibility of course. I'd start with that bug and go from there. Again, Red Hat Support may be able to really assist you in this.
