FAQ
Playing around with my benchmark script and found the following results
on one of my servers. The test details can be found below.=20

Question:=20

-> In test 5 logging is disabled but I "log file parallel write" becomes
primary wait, the only action that really improved was the DELETE ALL
FROM TABLE. How do you "tune/reduce" this wait event? Does this relate
to CPU speed at this point?

Observation:
-> dbwr_io_slaves introduced quite a bit of more wait from "io done" but
did not effect overall run time of the benchmark.=20

Ran 4 tests

Ran as is.
change db_writer_processes from 1 - 6, much faster
tried dbwr_io_slaves=3D6 - pretty much same results as #2
same as 2 plus _disable_logging=3Dtrue

The benchmark includes the followings tests and these represent the
general times for 2-4 with the exception of the DELETE TABLE which was
much fast with _disable_logging =3D true in test #4.

The interesting thing is to look at the changes in wait times from
Statspack.
