Re: [suse-oracle] Strange error on log transport / data guard, SLES10



1) I don't think that ''you must create ALL of your original data files
with directio in the first place", directio can be changed without changing

2) Looks as turning async io on for FS trigger some bug.

3) But when I run primary on UL4.4 (and standby on SLES10) I dion't have
such problem.

5) Both have 'setall' setting, SLES10 have reiserfs + Notail, and UL4.4 have

6) Archive shipping mode is SYNC (or what is required for Fast Failover?
SYNC, as I remember).

Subject: RE: [suse-oracle] Strange error on log transport / data guard,

We've had an open TAR on a corrupt archive logs on dataguard issue with
Oracle for two years. The last update to the TAR just a week ago said
that Oracle development could reproduce and solve the problem by setting
filesystemio_options = setall or directio instead of asynch. Only
problem with that is you must create ALL of your original data files
with directio in the first place, so we are stuck.

The problems we see are much more subtle, just a message about a corrupt
log on the standby. The standby eventually recovers, but the result is
that many archive logs must be shipped to the standby multiple times.
That just makes things worse and slower. At one point we could reproduce
on test equipment 100% of the time. We were clobbered with this issue
after an SLES8 kernel upgrade and an Oracle upgrade so we stopped

We have given up trying to solve the issue and we'll stick with what
we've got until our next hardware refresh as we have reached an
"understanding" with our hardware and software combinations. Sad really.

Best of luck solving this issue.
