How large was your database?  Note that if the database is not 
substantially larger that the amount of physical memory, the file system 
may able to cache most of your data.  In that case, you will not gain 
much extra from concurrent I/O.

A metric I have found useful to is the average and maximum times for I/O 
requests.  That can give some indications on the queuing effects of I/O. 
  I have just measured the time by calls to System.currentTimeMillis() 
in readPage/writePage.
