Re: LMDB database size

We are using BerkeleyDB since a decade - but we are searching for something

The small code  and the benchmark-results are very impressive!
A question: We have a server with 4 GB RAM. One of the BerkeleyDB-files has
about 20 GB.This particular database is a kind of archive - hardly read and hardly
written (maybe once per minute).
Is it possible to "mmap()" a 20 GB database into the RAM?


If yes, will the server
start "swapping"?


Thanks a lot
