Major Linux I/O Bug? SPOLER: No

Alternate title: Betteridge's Law Holds!

Last week, I posted on what I thought was an I/O bug in RHEL 7 and CentOS 7. I've now done enough testing to eliminate this possibility.  So, as promised:


So what was happening, then, that led me to get such drastically different results?

Some Very Cool Things Are Happening in the Informix World

I read two interesting things this week. One was an award that Informix won and the other is a White Paper Bloor put out. Both reference Informix as a platform for IoT or Internet of Things data storage and processing.

Major Linux I/O Bug? -- UPDATED 2016-07-19

Update 19 Jul 2016: I still believe there's an issue here, but I've got reason to believe my tests were not as apples-to-apples as I'd originally thought. So I'm re-engineering the tests and trying again to get updated numbers.  I'm also checking to see if I can replicate results with Informix completely removed from the mix, doing some testing with simple dd.

It is also possible that there's no problem at all, and I may have to cue Emily Litella.

Is This Thing On?

In a move that should make all of you question Andrew's judgment, he's invited me to also contribute to the Informix DBA blog.  So now you'll get erratic posting from two of the three fastest* Informix DBAs in the world.

Hopefully I'll be able to contribute something of value besides bad humor.

* - Fastest according to one extremely arbitrary contest several years and versions ago, in which only a small fraction of the world's Informix DBAs actually participated.
