|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.
