    LOBs and Berkley DB (Sleepycat)

    Michael Barker Apprentice

      During testing of the Berkely DB I noticed that the memory consumption is quite high. I then found the following FAQ entry:

      See the entry dated: June 23, 2004.

      Essentially BDB doesn't support efficient partial writes. Until it does the BDB implemenation of the store should be considered as deprecated and will be removed for M4 onwards. It will remain in the CVS attic and can be restored if the BDB support for LOBs improves.

      For a light-weight, in-process mail store the HSQL & Paged Store implementation is recommended.
