issue with wait on log buffer space. Oracle recommends enable write cache??

Jaco Polet


I have a general issue with loading data into a Oracle database on solaris 8. I reduced it down to a simple statement which takes 1 second on my PC (oracle but takes 20 seconds on the database on solaris.
I traced it and the trace showed a 19 second wait on log buffer space. (see trace output)
I increased the value of log_buffer and set disk_async_io=FALSE (increasing the db_writers) but this didn't make a difference
On metalink I found note 263652.1 saying that this was a general issue on all platforms which could be fixed by switching on write cache. (It doesn't state that is is fixed in a next version)
It sounds strange to me that Oracle recommends to write the redo log to cache. Is this correct and if so how do I switch this on  (the redologs are on local disks) ? I am also surprised that when searching the internet I don't get any hits on this although it looks like a general issue. What am I missing?
Hope someone can help me with this... Jaco Polet
