      In the last step of search near, wiredtiger walks the cursor back and forth to find a visible value. If there are a lot of invisible data to the reader, the search near performs poorly. As for each invisible key it inspects, it needs to do a history store search to check if there is a visible version in the history store or not. And most of the time, it will find nothing there.

      Scope of the ticket:
      Brainstorm optimisations to improve the search near performance in this case and create separate tickets.
