Well, if I understand correctly you are comparing a setup with four 
machines and one central MySQL server with a setup that uses local tmpfs 
on each. In my picture that is not comparable. The lot of your iowait time 
may have been latency-induced. Having said that, if you are happy with 
that setup and it works for you: why not :-)
