Re: High waits/Timeouts - log file parallel write

Hi Tom,

The 'log file parallel write' waits affect LGWR only. They do not affect the performance of user processes directly (although they do impact somewhat on your 'log file sync' wait duration). The number of timeouts is influenced by your use of asynchronous I/O and by how often LGWR is posted by user processes. It is not a useful indicator of performance problems.

I think you should be more concerned about the 'control file parallel write' waits that are probably affecting user processes directly.

It seems like I'm having some issue with the LGWR
"log file parallel write" (timeouts). Can you suggest and/or provide some
recommendations? The DB version is 9205 on
Solaris 2.9.


Thanks in advance!
