The documentation for 'innodb_flush_sync' or 'innodb_io_capacity_max' don't mention each other, so it's not clear whether 'innodb_flush_sync' also ignores 'innodb_io_capacity_max'.

The source code does seem to mention it in "https://github.com/mysql/mysql-server/blob/e57893fef5b2739c59b8f354d199251514571f61/storag...".

"This should force page cleaners to perform the sync-flush in which case the innodb_max_io_capacity is not respected."

Although it's a big ambiguous, because 'innodb_max_io_capacity' is worded differently, and not sure if it's talking about 'innodb_io_capacity_max'.

How to repeat:


Suggested fix:
The option 'innodb_flush_sync' should mention whether 'innodb_io_capacity_max' is also ignored.

The 'innodb_io_capacity_max' option should also mention the reverse.
