in reply to Increasing the write buffer

I'm having a hard time convincing myself that increasing the size of the writes would have any effect at all as the limiting factor is the number of dirty pages that the vm manager is willing to allow. Once the vm manager starts flushing dirty pages to free up pages, disk writes are going to become synchronous.
