Latency and performance problems in storage subsystems can be tricky to understand and tune. If you've ever been stuck in a traffic jam or waited in line to get into a concert, you know that queues can be frustrating to understand and trying on your patience.

Several years ago, I gave a presentation on corporate open source anti-patterns. Several of my anti-patterns were clear and unequivocal (e.g., don’t announce that you’re open sourcing something without making the source code available, dummy!), but others were more complicated.
