After importing 17 million nodes and 85 million relationships into the Neo4j database (150gb), starting up and shutting down the Neo4j database is much slower. Start up now takes over 15 minutes as compared to 4 seconds prior to the data being imported:

Is this slow start up time to be expected? This is a small subset of what we expect to import into the database, so if increasing the amount of data in the database causes start up times to slow down linearly, this would be a significant weakness of the database.
If this is not expected, what can I do to debug why its starting up so slowly?
