Are you seeing any error messages in log/erlang.log.* or log/sasl-error.log?

Can you expound on your use case a little -- are you doing a large
insert, or just a random read/write mix? Did you pre-populate the
dataset? Why are you using r=1, instead of relying on quorom for

How are you running the riak-admin status to measure the 15-20 seconds?
