re Direct IO -- was RE: Important note about asynchronous commit



Oracle should always be opening the files with O_DSYNC.

See http://www.opensolaris.org/jive/thread.jspa?messageID=7037
There's a good point there about the Archiver -- ArchiveLog files
should not be on Direct I/O filesystems.

This thread leads me to a question.  Does the Unix syncer come into play
when direct IO is used?  I believe it does with most FS caching, which
means that even synchronous writes can't really be guaranteed, doesn't
it?  At least that's what I was lead to believe...
