Woof.

Of course.

Harold,

You appear to be running on about 10 disks total.  Each disk should be
capable of about 100 ops per second but they appear to be doing about 70.
 This is plausible overhead.

Try attaching 5 or 10 small EBS partitions to each of your nodes and use
them in HDFS.  That may substantially increase your maximum IOP rate and
thus your read rate.

Is your actual load going to be completely uniformly random?  Or will there
be a Zipf distribution?  Will there be burst of repeated accesses?

Uniform random can be a reasonably good approximation if you are running
behind a cache large enough to cache all repeated accesses.  If you aren't
behind a cache, uniform access might be very unrealistic (and pessimistic).

Do you have logs that you can use to model your actual read behaviors?
