No database logging

If you turn off logging for a database, transactions are not logged, but other operations are logged. For more information, see Activity that is always logged. Usually, you would turn off logging for a database when you are loading data, or just running queries.

If you are satisfied with your recovery source, you can decide not to use transaction logging for a database to reduce the amount of database server processing. For example, if you are loading many rows into a database from a recoverable source such as tape or an ASCII file, you might not require transaction logging, and the loading would proceed faster without it. However, if other users are active in the database, you would not have logical-log records of their transactions until you reinitiate logging, which must wait for a level-0 backup.
