      Description

      The WT documentation says that eviction does not begin until eviction_trigger is reached, but to my understanding

      • eviction begins (using background threads) once cache utilization is above eviction_target, and continuously attempts to keep cache utilization at eviction_target, and
      • eviction_trigger controls evictions by application threads, which are involved in evictions if and only if cache utilization is above eviction_trigger.
