Re: Ext3 behavior on power failure



 If you fsync() your data, you are guaranteed that also your data are
safely on disk when fsync returns. So what is the question here?

Pardon a newbie's intrusion, but I do know this isn't true. There is a window of possible loss because of the multitude of layers of caching, especially within the drive itself. Unless there is a super_duper_fsync() that is able to actually poll the hardware and get a confirmation that the internal buffers are purged?
