Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5691) Document that Write Caching must be disabled to avoid possible database corruption
Date Sat, 19 May 2012 01:04:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5691?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13279380#comment-13279380

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-5691:

For platform neutrality it may be good to change this line:

  "Run Derby on a local drive rather than on an NFS-mounted disk. "

to include "NFS mounted, SMB mounted or other network mounted disk"

> Suggestion that we document a recommendation that Windows Write Caching be disabled on
machines using Derby.
> The following article warns about Write Caching on Windows as a possbile source of database
>      http://support.microsoft.com/kb/281672
> It is possible that this could be the cause of some unexplained Derby corruptions identified
after power failure of other system interupt.
> Links explaining how to disable Write Caching:
>   Win 2K: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/259716
>    Win 2008: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324805
> 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.
