Optimal size of innodb_log_file_size

As you know, during commit InnoDB writes the data at once into data files and records changes in the first innodb_log_file. The fact that write data directly to the table – a much more expensive operation than to record changes in the binary log.
Keeping innodb_log_file allows optimization of I/O: write data to successive large pieces, and more quickly serve customers (customer commits quickly made, and the data in the table space are recorded in the background). Therefore, the larger the file, the more opportunities to optimize InnoDB I/O. Currently, the total size of innodb_log_file limited to 4 GB, which is more than enough for most cases.
