[LDM #ISX-930596]: LDM slow writing to disk



Hi Carissa,


> Why in our case would FILE possibly be better?

Good question.

I'm not sure I can give you a definitive answer, however. The STDIOFILE action 
was written by my late LDM predecessor, Glenn Davis, for reasons that are now 
lost. Based on my understanding of standard I/O, however, I believe that the 
FILE action will actually do less copying of the data into buffers than the 
STDIOFILE action; consequently, it should be faster.

I haven't tested this hypothesis, however, which is why I asked if you could. 
Don't do it if it would compromise or risk something -- and please keep me 
apprised.

Regards,
Steve Emmerson
