In order to test tiered storage with the range of other WiredTiger configuration options, workload permutations, etc., we need to add support for it to test/format.
Initially we will want to include:
- A configuration option specifying that the test should use tiered table(s)
- Configuration option(s) using different ways of triggering flush operations (periodically from the application, periodically managed by WT, wait vs. nowait, timeout, etc.)
- Tiered manager configuration options
We can expand this list as we think of other things.
