You're confusing logs and logs.  The logs traditionally in /var/log are
of a totally different order from the write-ahead logs in MonetDB.
MonetDB log's are an integral part of the database and not an optional
add-on like the logs in /var/log.  Those latter logs are useful to see
what has happened, but they are not meant to secure transactions.  The
contents of /var/log can be deleted with impunity, but that is not the
case for the write-ahead logs of MonetDB.
