How fast MogileFS write speed is?

I just migrated our pictures which store in a nfs server before.

I'm using a python client :

and sendfile to two storage nodes.

i watch the write speed by calculate the two printed time delta.
print now # time1
sendfile # read from a nfs store and send file to mogilefs
print now # time2

delta = time2-time1

and check the file size, the average speed is 7KB/s on our local
production network.
