Turning on forced writes forces the data to disk regularly. It is
possible to develop a huge backlog of unwritten data that makes
performance very erratic. I suspect that your problem is that
the server is consuming large amount of memory for an auto-undo
log. If you have control over your transactions, you should
use the isc_tpb_no_auto_undo tpb option.
