Redbook Best Practices for DB2 on AIX 6.1 for POWER System. It shows a list of the common parameters you need to look at for disks when they are connecting to a SAN.
That Redbook also has a section on tuning storage on AIX (section 3.4). It covers the parameters used for hdisks erformance: queue_depth, max_transfer and max_coalesce.

Once again, you can get to the Redbook here. See two sections in particular:
