[Glass] Is it possible to disable tranlogs for some gems?

Hi guys,

I almost sure the answer is no. But I would like to comment my scenario
since there could be other workarounds. I have some daily cron jobs that
run at night that do quite large commits. Basically, they read huge files
and do a kind of bulk load into GemStone.

Once of the things I notice is that for every day, I have like 4 log files
of 1GB each. This makes much more space usage on disk (which in my case is
importante) and also, I can imagine there is quite a performance downgrade
while having to write logs.

So since this jobs run at night, with little or none user connect, I am
fine with not writing logs while these jobs run. "I am fine" in the sense
that if the system crashes while doing so, I am ok to recover from previous
checkpoint and lost a few transactions if any.

However, it seems it is not possible to disable tranlogs for particular
gems, right? In addition, I did not found an easy way to directly
enable/disable logs of the stone. To disable, the admin guide says I must
run a full backup, then change file, then stop stone, start again etc...So
it seems quite complicated...

Is there anything that could help me here?

I am using GemStone

Thanks in advance,
