BIG performance issue with ext3

I have a big problem with my hard disk in a very high performance
computer. The disk is a SATA2. When running I/O operations the
performance is just horrible (around 10 times slower than my home
computer). I've tested this with bonnie++.

I'm trying to discover what's wrong but I don't really know what to
do. Can anyone help telling me what to check out?

This are the parameters of the FS:
