Re: bdb corruption

From the reading I have been doing on this list, this is a bdb bug that
has no known timeline for a fix. Some people say it's avoidable by
setting a large cache size (big enough for your entire db) in your
DB_CONFIG file. Others avoid the problem by using solaris.
List: Please correct me if I'm wrong, but that is the conclusion I have
come to dealing with this problem.
Anyone know exactly what is going wrong in bdb, are they aware of the bug?
I use solaris AND put everything into a cache. I believe BDB 4.2 is
supposed to have fixes to the problem, but not having a proper cache size
will still cause performance issues.
