Subject [jira] [Updated] (DERBY-5691) Document that Write Caching must be disabled to avoid possible database corruption
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2012 18:30:40 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5691?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Kim Haase updated DERBY-5691:

    Attachment: DERBY-5691.zip

Attaching DERBY-5691.diff, DERBY-5691.stat, and DERBY-5691.zip, with the following changes:

M       src/adminguide/cadminpreface23947.dita
M       src/adminguide/derbyadmin.ditamap
A       src/adminguide/cadmindbintegrity.dita

I decided to give the new topic a more positive title, "Maintaining database integrity". 

I also included some of the more general caveats from DERBY-5508 that didn't quite fit in
that patch or that bear repeating. Hope that's okay.

Edits and additions are welcome -- thanks!

> Suggestion that we document a recommendation that Windows Write Caching be disabled on
machines using Derby.

> It is possible that this could be the cause of some unexplained Derby corruptions identified
after power failure of other system interupt.

> From the Windows 2008 article:
> With some third-party programs, disk write caching has to be turned on or off. Additionally,
turning disk write caching on may increase operating system performance; however, it may also
result in the loss of information if a power failure, equipment failure, or software failure
occurs. This article describes how to turn disk write caching on or off.
