Subject [jira] [Resolved] (AMQ-6377) Introduce a periodic disk sync mode for KahaDB journal
Date Wed, 27 Jul 2016 19:03:20 GMT


Christopher L. Shannon resolved AMQ-6377.
       Resolution: Fixed
    Fix Version/s: 5.14.0

[~gtully], Patch is committed and seems to work well in my testing.  Take a look and let me
know if you think anything should be tweaked.

It's set up so that an fsync will be done for the current data file (if necessary) at the
set interval time, when the current file is rotated, and also if the journal is closed.

> KahaDB has two modes for journal disk syncs, either always sync for each write or never
sync.  I'm proposing that we add a third option, a period disk sync. 
> The intended behavior of this would be to run a task in the file appender that would
sync the file (if necessary) at some periodic interval (such as every 500 ms, or 1 second,
etc) instead of every write.  The file would also be synced on close (on file rollover or
> In my testing, syncing every 1 second has been proven to be nearly indistinguishable
performance as never disk syncing but is a safer option as you insure that a sync is performed
at least once per interval.
