Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 [Release 9.2 to 12.1]
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)
Running benchmarks with Direct IO and Concurrent IO.
disk_asynch_io is set to true, filesystemio_options = setall and db_block_size=8k
Will DIO and CIO be used when the operating system uses 4k blocks and Oracle is set to 8k blocks or is it required to set the db_block_size to 4k so it matches exactly what the OS has?
