No metrics.
When I use filesystemio_options=setall (not =directio !!!) and mount this particular filesystem _without_ 'forcedirectio' option it gives me two options: 1. direct and asynchronous access to all files where rdbms prefers such access (the most important) 2. cacheable access to all other files (some files are accessed faster when they are "behind" cache)

We don't use filesystemio_options=directio, only filesystemio_options=setall.
