During a Benchmark Run of OLTP Transactions very High "log file sync" wait is occuring Storage Box - Sun StoreEdge 9990V (Hitachi SAN) Online Redo logfiles exist on Mounted Filesystem on a LUN / Volume of 4+4 Hard Disks , (RAID 1+0 Type) Hard Disk - 15 K RPM
Storage Cache - 128 GB
Online Redo Logfile size 750 MB
log_buffer= 4M

Solaris 10

Qs On the Storage Box, should a few of its HBA Controllers & respective Ports be assigned dedicatedly only to the online Redo LUN / Volume? Qs Should Online Redo Logiles be moved to RAW Devices on the SAN Storage? Qs Any advisable init.ora parameters?

Qs How should this issue be approached?

Will share Statspack as needed

Cheers & Thanks
