I have made changes to keep log in memory using DB_LOG_INMEMORY flag.
The log size is kept 10MB.
Now when I try to add 64K entries, 65526 entries get added but 65527th
entry always fails.
The error I get is "Index Generation Failed".
I tried to debug the issue and found that the cursor->c_del function in
bdb_idl_insert_key fails returning an error code as DB_LOG_BUFFER_FULL.
Am I missing something or is this a known problem?
Do I need to do anything more while keeping logs in memory?
Have you read Berkeley documentation about DB_LOG_INMEMORY? This is the
expected result of creating an in-memory buffer smaller than the size of
the largest transaction you want to create. Either use a larger buffer,
or write smaller chunks. And read the docs
In this case they cannot write smaller chunks, it's purely a function of how
we generate indexes. When an index slot gets to about 65536 elements we delete
that list and replace it with a 3-element range. This delete operation
consumes a great deal of log space.
The solution of course is to use a larger buffer.
