Or when the server is idle.

That's tricky since we're asking the OS to do something
that we can't control ... if we wait too long, everything
may stop for a huge amount of disk access.

Or by FLUSH command.

From the commode utility? sorry. That's really putting a
burden on the system administrator.

Or after the system updates more crucial data (TIP?, page allocation? ...)

Again, this gets to be very similar to sync writes.


We have answers.
