Log sbspaces and smart large objects

Sbspaces, described in Sbspaces, contain two components: metadata and user data. By default, sbspaces are not logged.

The metadata component of the sbspace describes critical characteristics of smart large objects stored in a particular sbspace. The metadata contains pointers to the smart large objects. If the metadata were to be damaged or become inaccessible, the sbspace would be corrupted and the smart large objects within that sbspace would be unrecoverable.

Metadata in a standard sbspace is always logged, even if logging is turned off for a database. Logging sbspace metadata ensures that the metadata can always be recovered to a consistent transaction state. However, metadata in a temporary sbspace is not logged.
