That’s the only place that I know.

Have you tested your storage throughput? Even something as simple as `hdparm -t /dev/sda`[1]? 

What about monitoring background I/O demand, i.e. `iostat -x 1`? Look at the %util on the drive being written to.

I know you said your log isn’t being written to the local disk, but other storage activity could still be pushing up your I/O base load.

[1] Replace `/dev/sda` with your actual storage device.
