When to Use Non-Transaction Files

Use non-transaction files when the files are of a temporary nature and can be re-created or the data in the files can be restored from another source in the event of an abnormal server termination.

To minimize loss of unwritten cached non-transaction file updates in the event of an abnormal server termination, consider using WRITETHRU for non-transaction files or periodically calling the FairCom DB API function CtreeFlushFile() to flush non-transaction data and index cache pages to disk.
