Syntax: ReadAhead = value [only]

where value is either True, Yes, False, or No.

Default: False

The ReadAhead option can be used to increase throughput when DBEngine accesses a remote audit file via DBServer, such as when running DATABridge Span with the “SOURCE sourcename ...” option, or the “MIRRORED AUDIT ...” DBEngine option. If the ReadAhead option is enabled, DBEngine will request the next audit region before the accessory actually needs it. This overlaps the network time and the processing time for greater throughput. The optional word "only" ensures that the DATABridge Client or accessory cannot change this option.
