Can you have the performance analysis with tools such as perf?

The most of network processing happens in kernel space. The I/O
processing too. They are not related with the number of user

Yeah, tgtd would be a bottleneck but there are lots of other possible

As I said yesterday, I think that we need to think about using
multiple threads for targets (or initiators) if necessary. But we need
the evidence first.
