Have you checked the online docs?  They should have everything you need.

They can be found at www.oracle.com

"direct path sync"  isn't documented

I don't see "db file sequential write" or "db file scattered write" as events at all looking at v$event_name,  where are you seeing them?

the others can be found here...

devind,

Your post is simply an older version of the same document I already posted above.

Please read all prior posts to be sure you are contributing something unique.


Also,  "direct path sync" does exist in 11.1.0.7 and above as well as 10.2.0.5 but not 10.2.0.4 or lower
I don't know about the earlier releases of 11gR1 though.

as mentioned above check v$event_name  - it's a real event
and, also mentioned above, even though it's a real event,  it's not documented

I'm afraid I'll have to object to this request given the reason of "found answer".

Where did you find the answer?

I recommend http:#35173998

it explains where to find events in the data dictionary
identifies non-existent events
and provides link to source documentation for all other events  (for those that are documented)
