Flash cache is configured, but not 100% used. Only 1% of the configured flash cache size can be used.

Example:
Following settings are configured to make use of 4GB flash cache

*.db_block_size=32768
*.db_flash_cache_file='/dev/md/rdsk/d29'


However, below SQL output indicates that only 22338 flash blocks are used (32KB for every block, so around 700MB in total).
