RE: Linux RAC and asynch io - OCFS & "filesystemio_options" parameter?

For the record (if anyone still interested in this thread) I found out
recently;

 - Oracle 9i supports ASYNC IO on Linux.
 - Oracle OCFS supports ASYNC IO on Linux.

*HOWEVER* Oracle 9i RAC + OCFS + using ASYNC IO is NOT supported.
...but I am currently running it and I immediately notice that "shutdown
immediate" hangs / terminates.

Have to "Ctrl+c" in my SQL> term and issue "shutdown immediate" again to
stop the database!

Saw a simple bug logged on Metalink for HP and RAC for the same
issue...no good info though.

My config;
9205
ocfs 1.0.13-1

Anyone want to take a guess as to what "filesystemio_options" should be
set to?

Could find a direct answer on Metalink...I would guess
"filesystemio_options=3D3Dasynch", because my (Cluster) filesystem
supports async IO?

PS I found no posted issues regarding database crashes, Linux & async
I/O!?

Everything I have read advocates aio on RHAS 3.0.

I have heard also it can cause crashes and corruption, but found no meat
to that statement no open bugs for 9205/9206 on rhas 3.0 Anyone with any
hard facts as to real issues or successes? Anyone done an IO slave
implementation in Linux/RAC? IO slaves in many ways are more robust and
multi purpose than asych IO functionality...but I'm wondering how that
performs with RAC.

Yes, I would and will test either or both before consideration with
prod, but looking for others insights if they have been down the road.
