Hi All,
I have been having a terrible perfomance problem with one of my databases and it seems as if log switches occur very frequently(within seconds). I am begining to think that my log_buffers are too small. As it is now, it is set to 8192 and my log_checkpoint_interval is set to 10000. How much of a performance problem does a small log_buffer cause to a database? How large can I increase it? Is the log_checkpoint_interval too small? How can I determine what is setting off the log switch(log_checkpoint_interval or log_buffer size)? I am thinking of increasing it to like 163840.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
