I have overview striped across eight disks, and each disk also
contains a cycbuff.  The pattern I see is that one disk is maxed
out for a while, then the next, then the next, in the same order
that they're mentioned in the metacycbuff definition in cycbuff.conf.
So for me, at least, overview is not the bottleneck.  I'm using ovdb.
