public void set_lg_bsize(int lg_bsize) throws DbException;
Set the size of the in-memory log buffer, in bytes. By default, or if the value is set to 0, a size of 32K is used. The size of the log file (see DbEnv.set_lg_max) must be at least four times the size of the the in-memory log buffer.
Log information is stored in-memory until the storage space fills up or transaction commit forces the information to be flushed to stable storage. In the presence of long-running transactions or transactions producing large amounts of data, larger buffer sizes can increase throughput.
The DbEnv.set_lg_bsize interface may be used only to configure Berkeley DB before the DbEnv.open interface is called.
The DbEnv.set_lg_bsize method throws an exception that encapsulates a non-zero error value on failure.
The database environment's log buffer size may also be set using the environment's DB_CONFIG file. The syntax of the entry in that file is a single line with the string "set_lg_bsize", one or more whitespace characters, and the size in bytes. Because the DB_CONFIG file is read when the database environment is opened, it will silently overrule configuration done before that time.
The DbEnv.set_lg_bsize method may fail and throw an exception encapsulating a non-zero error for the following conditions:
Called after DbEnv.open was called.
The size of the log file is less than four times the size of the in-memory log buffer.
The DbEnv.set_lg_bsize method may fail and throw an exception for errors specified for other Berkeley DB and C library or system methods. If a catastrophic error has occurred, the DbEnv.set_lg_bsize method may fail and throw a DbRunRecoveryException, in which case all subsequent Berkeley DB calls will fail in the same way.
