Yes, I have some evaluations to show that we're writing less and using
overall less resources. Please give me a couple of days to translate.
In the case of PITR slave, because archive logs are read in a short
period, amount of archive log may not be an issue. In the case where
online backup and archive logs must be kept for (relatively) long
period, archive log size is a major issue.
