Several other questions about lmdb
1) does lmdb store one key-value pair in a single page? How lmdb organizes these key-value pairs in a single page
2) if size is larger than single page size , how lmdb process this request?
This list is for developers to discuss actual coding issues inside the OpenLDAP code; your questions are too elementary and don't belong here. Use the -technical list for user-oriented questions.
Any help will be appreciated ? thanks

Subject: questions about LMDB
Hi list ,
Recently I read docs about lmdb , there are two sentences
1) readers do not block writers
2) writers do not block readers
I can understand 'readers do not block writers' , but cannot understand the second one , can someone help explain , how lmdb achieve 'writers do not block readers', below is my understandings , please correct me if anything wrong.
if the access pattern is write - read, since lmdb only support two version of data , when the write has been started but not committed , the concurrent read may read stale data since write has not been committed.
