当一个用户提交(commits)或者回滚(rollback),session的redo信息需要写出到redo logfile中.
用户进程将通知LGWR执行写出操作,LGWR完成任务以后会通知用户进程.
这个等待事件就是指用户进程等待LGWR的写完成通知.

对于回滚操作,该事件记录从用户发出rollback命令到回滚完成的时间.

如果该等待过多,可能说明LGWR的写出效率低下,或者系统提交过于频繁.
针对该问题,可以关注:
log file parallel write等待事件
user commits,user rollback等统计信息可以用于观察提交或回滚次数

解决方案:
1.提高LGWR性能
尽量使用快速磁盘,不要把redo log file存放在raid 5的磁盘上
2.使用批量提交
3.适当使用NOLOGGING/UNRECOVERABLE等选项

可以通过如下公式计算平均redo写大小:

avg.redo write size = (Redo block written/redo writes)*512 bytes

如果系统产生redo很多,而每次写的较少,一般说明LGWR被过于频繁的激活了.
可能导致过多的redo相关latch的竞争,而且Oracle可能无法有效的使用piggyback的功能.

我们从一个statspack中提取一些数据来研究一下这个问题.

1.主要信息

                  ......
                  					   

2.等待事件

---------------------------- ------------ ---------- ----------- ------ ------

我们看到,这里log file sync和db file parallel write等待同时出现了.
显然log file sync在等待db file parallel write的完成.

这里磁盘IO肯定存在了瓶颈,实际用户的redo和数据文件同时存放在Raid的磁盘上,存在性能问题.
需要调整.

		    = 3K				



这个平均过小了,说明系统的提交过于频繁.

由于过渡频繁的提交,LGWR过度频繁的激活,我们看到这里出现了redo writing的latch竞争.

关于redo writing竞争你可以在steve的站点找到详细的介绍:
http://www.ixora.com.au/notes/lgwr_latching.htm


转引如下:

 

When LGWR wakes up, it first takes the redo writing latch to update the SGA variable that shows whether it is active. This prevents other Oracle processes from posting LGWR needlessly. LGWR then takes the redo allocation latch to determine how much redo might be available to write (subject to the release of the redo copy latches). If none, it takes the redo writing latch again to record that it is no longer active, before starting another rdbms ipc message wait.
If there is redo to write, LGWR then inspects the latch recovery areas for the redo copy latches (without taking the latches) to determine whether there are any incomplete copies into the log buffer. For incomplete copies above the sync RBA, LGWR just defers the writing of that block and subsequent log buffer blocks. For incomplete copies below the sync RBA, LGWR sleeps on a LGWR wait for redo copy wait event, and is posted when the required copy latches have been released. The time taken by LGWR to take the redo writing and redo allocation latches and to wait for the redo copy latches is accumulated in the redo writer latching time statistic.

(Prior to release 8i, foreground processes held the redo copy latches more briefly because they did not retain them for the application of the change vectors. Therefore, LGWR would instead attempt to assure itself that there were no ongoing copies into the log buffer by taking all the redo copy latches.)

After each redo write has completed, LGWR takes the redo allocation latch again in order to update the SGA variable containing the base disk block for the log buffer. This effectively frees the log buffer blocks that have just been written, so that they may be reused.
