This script is intended to provide a user friendly guide to troubleshoot log file sync waits. The script will look at important parameters involved in log file sync waits, log file sync wait histogram data, and the script will look at some of the worst average log file sync times in the active session history data and AWR data and dump information to help determine why those times were the highest. The script will create a file called lfsdiag_<timestamp>.out in your local directory.

See <Note: 857576.1> for more information on troubleshooting 'log file sync' waits and see <Note: 34592.1> for a definition of 'log file sync' and a list of known bugs.
