Additionally, what is Pageiolatch_sh? PAGEIOLATCH_SH. Occurs when a task is waiting on a latch for a buffer that is in an I/O request. The latch request is in Shared mode. Long waits may indicate problems with the disk subsystem. In practice, this almost always happens due to large scans over big tables.

Is read committed snapshot on?
No locks are placed on the data when it is read, so SNAPSHOT transactions do not block other transactions from writing data. If you set the READ_COMMITTED_SNAPSHOT database option to ON, the database engine uses row versioning and snapshot isolation as the default, instead of using locks to protect the data.
