You're seeing just the function file_sync, go back to CubDB module for more information.


file_sync(GenServer.server()) :: :ok

Performs a fsync, forcing to flush all data that might be buffered by the OS to disk.

Calling this function ensures that all writes up to this point are committed to disk, and will be available after a restart.

If CubDB is started with the option auto_file_sync: true, calling this function is not necessary, as every write operation will be automatically flushed to the storage device.

If this function is NOT called, the operative system will control when the file buffer is flushed to the storage device, which leads to better write performance, but might affect durability of recent writes in case of a sudden shutdown.
