Actually, I'm not sure this kind of data requested through direct IOs
are cold or hot data.
But I just intended to gather such the direct IO'ed data into one type
of log, not separately.
So, I selected WARM_DATA by the fact that such the data will be
frequently updated through direct IO either.
Thanks,
