Re: "free buffer waits" under eXtreme Transaction Loads

Just to clarify, it's not my situation, it's Vivek's.  He's welcome to do
whatever he wants.  But I don't see the value of changing something without
a reason to change it.  I don't know what the contradictory theories are,
but I've seen way too many people create huge log buffers because it said in
some Oracle document that log_buffer should be increased if redo log space
requests are not near-zero, without considering what near-zero really means.
I have yet to hear a good reason for a log buffer larger than 1MB (I'm happy
to consider it if I hear such a reason, but not until).  Granted, I've never
seen a system generating 6MB/second of redo (the most I've worked with was
1/3 that), but I'd still want to hear good logic before I tried something.

Hi Terry,
The reason is because I would like to test the impact of a 10m size log
buffer space in your situation.
I understand if you reject, but if possible, only to see what implies it ;),
because there are
several contradictories theories about a 10M size, I would like to see what
happens, I think
this will be interesting, if this not takes to you too much time

Thanks in advance.

Why would you want him to do this. If his log buffer were too small,
wouldn't he be seeing "log buffer space" waits? I'd expect "log file sync"
waits to get worse with a larger log buffer.

Could I ask you please if is possible in your tests to incrase to 10M, test
and share if this improves in some way your performance.
Thank you in advance
