I asked about How to use Flash Disk (Exadata)? on oracle-l - I think this may have benefit for someone. However, We should know about Flash Disk benefits on Oracle Database. and I have some question: What should we contain Online Redo Log Files in Flash Disk?
Online redo log files record all changes made to Oracle Database data files and control file. When a change is made to the database, Oracle Database generates a redo record in the redo buffer. Log Writer (LGWR) writes the contents of the redo buffer to the online redo log. LGWR performs sequential writes of redo to disk.
That's a concept what we know, and LGWR can perform fast sequential writes of redo to disk, the database improves performance.
A solid-state drive (SSD) is a data storage device that uses solid-state memory to store persistent data with the intention of providing access in the same manner of a traditional block i/o hard disk drive. SSD has write speeds lower than its read speeds and sequential writes isn't better faster than Hard Disk.
So, I think It's not good idea to contain Online Redo Log Files in Flash Disk. How do you think?
