I'm a bit curios though. Have you investigated the option to run a
replicator from RAm to disk rather than using the shadow file feature? I
would assume that a replicator would not have to touch the disk header
page for read only transaction, for example, while I assume the shadow
feature will touch the headers of both files, always.

If you've investigated replication but chose shadow files, can you
describe why?
