Hello folk!

I have a excessive amount of 'log file sync' waits on my database(30-35%). In documentation are write that this waitevent occur when the session are commit. I have traced some sessions on database and has seen that this waitevent occur not only after commits but also after exec and fetch operations. Can anyone explain to me why this occur.

Usually log_file_syncs happen on commits and when DBWR waits for the LGWR to flush the redo entries corresponding to the recent changes.

These are Selects and not Updates,deletes,commits ? How about posting a test case , in sqlplus, with sql_trace enabled.

For testing purposes,can do you a full table scan on all the tables used by this query and then observe if you still have log file syncs on the exec/fetch calls of your queries ? I am trying to eliminate something as a possible cause.
