Last updated on OCTOBER 09, 2015

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 5.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

Write barriers enforce proper on-disk ordering of  journal commits, making volatile disk write caches safe to use, although at some performance penalty.  Should filesystem barriers be disabled for Oracle Linux?
