We are having hell of problems in production with # logs getting
generated..almost 4Gig worth of transaction binary/BDB logs in a day(4000 10mb

No debugging/logging turned in slapd.

Log rotate scripts is moving the logs to diff location to keep the prod up..but
few times we ran of space and I don't find any clue on minimize and log only for
updated transactions. It seems BDB is recording every read/write(not sure)..I
can't enable Auto_Achieve as need them for recovery.

Any known issue in the space? How to turn of unwanted logging of BDB?

==================Here are the detail of prod volume & DB_CONFIG file=====
openldap-2.3.32&BDB 4.5.20
our ldap/BDB is generating too many logs file. 
Total records in ldap/BDB - 110k
Reads  - 10k/day
Updates - 1k/day

# one 0.25 GB cache
#set_cachesize 0 268435456 1
