FreezeMap Database Directory

In the Freeze documentation in Section 16.3.1 (page 371), one paragraph reads:
The second argument is the name of an existing file system directory in which the database environment should reside. The directory stores any databases created in this environment, as well as log files created by the database subsystem.
Is is possible to change this so that we can place the log files and database files in different directories on different disks?

For traditional relational databases, placing the log file on a different disk can really improve database performance. From reading the Berkeley DB documentation, it seems that it would benefit as well.

    Hi Ken,

    Assuming that the berkeley db APIs allow this (and I'm pretty sure they do) then we can add such a paramter.
