A warning message in Alert log asynchronous I/O limit warning of the form:

"Warning: OS async I/O limit 128 is lower than recovery batch 1024"

may be signaled in the alert log by recovery slave or coordinator processes.This error is because of kernel has not been configured sufficiently for async IO operations.

Operations will still continue but IO operations will not be performed asynchronously which may impact recovery performance and will generate more trace files.


NOTE : HP-UX enables Oracle Database to perform I/O to (only) raw disk partitions using an asynchronous method
