High levels of waits for the 'log file sync' wait events are seen.

The 'log file sync' wait event is seen when a foreground process is waiting to be posted by LGWR to acknowledge that their particular buffers in the log buffer have been successfully flushed out to the physical redo logs. Assuming that log writing is working well and IO time is not excessive, most of the 'log file sync' time should  be related to IO and there should not be much of a difference between 'log file sync' and 'log file parallel write' wait events.
