Goal

In this document we are going to explain how to check that asynchronous I/O (AIO) is working. AIO can be enabled in Oracle 9i 9.2 and higher.

Many times there is a requirement to check if Asynchronous I/O is working on Linux Platform, so we can try to use it for our datafiles access inside database.
