    Description

      In the current implementation, the transaction log is opened in "append" mode and every new transaction is written to the end of the log. This means that new blocks get allocated to the edits file frequently.

      It is worth measuring the performance improvement when big chunks of the transaction log are allocated up front. Adding new transactions do not cause frequent block allocations for the edits log.
