Command basic.transaction.flush Statement/BASIC Program
Applicable release versions: AP 6.2
Category BASIC Program (486)
Description enables or disables the transaction flush mechanism.

Normally, all updates processed within a transaction are force-flushed to a reliable medium (disk). This is done to assure ACID compliance - i.e. the ability to recover a transaction if the machine should halt unexpectedly.

If ACID compliance is not necessary, then this flush mechanism can be disabled providing signicantly higher performance.
