Bulk Load

The In-Memory Database allows for switching between transactional inserts and a bulk load mode. The latter can be used to insert large sets of data without the transactional overhead and thus enables significant speed-ups when setting up systems or restoring previously collected data. Furthermore, scenarios with extremely high loads are enabled by buffering events and bulk-inserting them in chunks. This comes at the cost of reducing real-time capabilities to near-real time capabilities with an offset according to a defined buffering period, which oftentimes may be acceptable for business scenarios.
