Looks like you have no choice but to put your logging on a data disk.
 Logging can be expensive, yes.  It should be easy enough to measure in
your setup.  You can disable all logging for a short period while the
cluster is under load; do it on a single node even (you can do this from
the UI).  See how your io changes when logging is off.
