OK, thanks for your reply. I just thought we might hit some limit here, as we fsync to big battery backed controller caches, so seek times is less an issue. On our workload (a small active set of data), the benefit from using the controller cache seems extreme. We can push 3 times as many transactions per second than with disabled controller cache. -- Regards, H.D.
