They are effectively the same. The only difference is the message displayed to the user when they attempt to logon.
Yes. They don't differ on the resulting effects, but on the motivations (read: why?) of the deactivation. See here for more details.
SSDs are not disk I/O "aspirins". And NAS drives are not exactly speed deamons either. If you are going to have a single drive and there is an expectation of speed, you start with a WD Black or Velociraptor. As for the Control Panel taking a second or two to open, if it happens even without all the gaming servers started, there is a fundamental hardware ...
EDIT: TomTom pointed out to me that each process has waiting for its IO operations -- over 2 seconds! -- to complete. You do have an I/O problem. It may or may not be an issue with the hard drive, which by all measures, is a perfectly good high performance drive. But the problem might just be that you have all these processes contending for the same ...
Given that your disc is overloaded - yes, that is a bottlneck. One disc is notoriously crappy in IO (unless it is an SSD). That said - if you run game servers, do you really care about the starting time (which is rare)? Just "sit it out". Once the programs are started, things should be faster. For FAST IO - you ultimately want (need) an SSD.
Because in the way you are using lsof, you are counting everything, not only the file descriptors, use something like this: lsof -n -p <pid_number> | awk '$5 ~ /([0-9].+)/' But the more easy way is: ls -l /proc/673/fd | wc -l
