We're getting there. Calling 'sync' right after dd (no oflag=direct) takes forever and the load rises to 4-5. ### $ dd if=/dev/zero of=./test-data.dd bs=4096 count=10240 && time sync 41943040 bytes (42 MB) copied, 0.113586 seconds, 369 MB/s real 0m15.469s user 0m0.001s sys 0m0.055s ### Now, how do i "debug" sync? :-)
