In BDB 4.2 there's a new option to turn off transaction logging. This can
provide another 25% gain for bdb/hdb.
Isn't the transaction log the log.* files that are used by db_recover to
rebuild the database (without a complete slapadd) after a system crash?
So, wouldn't turning that off be *bad*?
I believe the point is to turn the log.* files off for the full data load,
not to keep them off after the system has started running. Much as in the
same way one does the DB_TXN_NOSYNC flag when doing the initial dataload.
