There are two types of records in a Common Log File System (CLFS) stream: data records and restart records. This topic explains how to write data records to a stream. For information about how to write restart records, see .
Before you can write data records to a CLFS stream, you must create a marshalling area by calling . Then you can append records to the marshalling area (which is in volatile memory), and CLFS will periodically flush the records to stable storage.

Ask students to think about the previous lesson in which they learned about how the use of writing might have evolved in Mesopotamia. The first writing recorded agricultural transactions. What kinds of thoughts, ideas, actions, or things were easiest to put into pictures? What kinds of things did they believe were the most necessary to keep a record of? After thinking about both of these questions ask students to try to imagine why it is that agricultural transactions—the buying and selling of grains or livestock- were among the first written messages on earth.
