Hello Jon,

Before you go into redesign of the redo logs, did you check w/the SAs/Storage
Admins ? During my last interactions with type of performance issue, I found
that RAID 5 had a negative effect on overall performance during QA testing. of
course, your mileage may vary.

Can you share your findings (as seen by SA/Storage Admins). How big are your
redo logs ? What kind of disks (Storage/SAN) are you folks using ?
