and viewtopic.php?f=33&t=5015
3.Q: Max latency on defer-write?
A: There is no limit and you even can choose "INFINITE", but usually this is useless because long latency will make the cache which has a limited space full of deferred write-data soon. When cache is full, "Urgent Writes" will be triggered, flushing certain amount of deferred data to underlying disks. If this happens, the performance will be degraded. So you should avoid "Urgent Writes" as possible by reducing the latency.
