> For writing the transaction log to disk Derby uses a
> RandomAccessFile. If it is supported by the JVM, the log files are
> opened in "rws" mode making the file system take care of syncing
> writes to disk. "rws" mode will ensure that both the data and the file
> meta-data is updated for every write to the file. On some operating
> systems (e.g. Solaris) this leads to two write operation to the disk
> for every write issued by Derby. This is limiting the throughput of
> update intensive applications.  If we could change the file mode to
> "rwd" this could reduce the number of updates to the disk.
> I have run some simple tests where I have changed mode from "rws" to
> "rwd" for the Derby log file. When running a small numbers of
> concurrent client threads the throughput is almost doubled and the
> response time is almost halved. I will attach some graphs that show
> this when running a given number of concurrent "tpc-b" like clients. These
> graphs show the throughput when running with "rws" and "rwd" mode when the
> disk's write cache has been enabled and disabled.
> I am creating this Jira to have a place where we can collect
> information about issues both for and against changing the default
> mode for writing to log files.
