Alter Log Buffer Timing?

Is there a way to alter the write buffer timing? It sounds like the default is 30 seconds but when I tail the logs it feels quicker than this.

As a side not, anyone disable log buffering altogether? What was the effect on the box if you did?

Thanks all!

Re: Alter Log Buffer Timing?

I still cant tell what the buffer write time is, it's clearly not 30 seconds. Are these questions I need to be calling into support for?

I did disable the log buffer and it didn't seem to impact the box from what I can see.

Re: Alter Log Buffer Timing?

Hi,

Log buffering helps reduce the I/O required by MWG.

In the early days we had customers disable log buffering and suffer huge performance issues. I think the checkbox might even be superfluous now (it does nothing -- logs are always buffered).

I'm not sure what the buffer time is though... it might just be based on volume (kb,mb,etc...)

Best Regards,

Jon
