Any input or reference hints would be great. I love reading manuals. :)

Subject: Using lmdb as a pure in memory store
To: openldap-technical@openldap.org


Hi there,

We are currently evaluating in memory key value stores for ~100,000 -
200,000 records in an embedded system. I suggested lmdb but it is
being discounted for some reasons I thought I'd validate:

1) It is currently thought that a on disk file is REQUIRED for the
system. Does MDB_NOSYNC turn off the disk caching? Can it be run as a
pure in-memory database? Could the file not just be mapped to a
memdisk?
2) Because these values can come very fast, that the use of a lock
file would cause delay and too much wear on the nand based disk (SSD).
I see a no locking option ( MDB_NOLOCK) that would stop a lock file
being written. Again, another option would be mapping the lock file to
a memdisk to  handle that?

Thanks!

Russ
