If there were statistics on corrupted Firebird databases, I believe more than 80% of them would have something in common: they were running with forced-writes off.

Since Firebird 2.1 forced-writes also work in linux. With that in mind I put together a comparison between the two modes.

What are forced-writes and when to use them?

I hope DBAs who like to live dangerously find this useful.
