The -b option should not be used if you are using LOAD TABLE to bulk load data. See LOAD TABLE statement.
When you use this option, the database server allows only one connection by one application. It keeps a rollback log, but
it doesn't keep a transaction log. The multi-user locking mechanism is turned off.
When you first start the database server after loading data with the -b option, you should use a new transaction log file.
Bulk operation mode doesn't disable the firing of triggers.
