Do you use the recent firmware version for the Coraid device (20060907)?
We've recently found that StarPort versions older 3.0.8 RC do not understand the maximum sector count per transfer reported by the firmware, so ever with Jumbo frames enabled, these StarPort versions use only 2 sectors per request that lead to the same poor performance as with normal Ethernet 1500 bytes per frame.
We have fixed the issue. The new StarPort version is in our test labs and will be available for download in 2-3 days.
According to the mentioned maximum througput values (60 and 90-110 MB\s). FYI these values are rechable with a syntetic storage tests (like IOmeter, etc), while real filesystems and disk workloads tend to show 10-20MB/s less than IOMeter does.

We will update the coraid to firmware 20060907 and wait for the new starport 3.0.8 version.
