es_mb_savemap serializes a database to disk in a special format that can be readily accessed by memory-mapping via es_mb_loadmap(). This can be very efficient if subsequent usage of the database only requires access to a few parts of it (via filtered iterating, for example) since only those portions would be loaded from disk.

es_mb_savemap is unlike es_mb_save() and its associated wrapper functions es_mb_savefile() and es_mb_savebuffer() in that it only saves root nodes (i.e. child and descendant nodes are ignored ) and ignores user-defined fields (defined via es_mbc_addfldmbu()).
