You said star doesn't run as fast on Linux as Solaris, you can probably
fix that problem by using O_DIRECT, so the writes and reads don't
compete for the same buffer memory.

Let me give you the advise that it helps a lot to shorten quotings
in order to get accepted by knowledgeable people.
I did not test O_DIRECT because I believe it is not worth testing after the
experiences with DG/UX, but star is notiable faster if you boot the same
hardware with Solaris instead of Linux.
You can fix the limitations of star by using O_DIRECT...
This sounds a bit confused. Are you able to describe your concern?
