Is there any method or mode provided by Tendermint-core to remove the heavily used write-ahead log mechanism?

The Tendermint-core uses a write-ahead log (WAL) mechanism to guarantee consensus safety after crashed validators recover. But this mechanism requires validators to write any received or generated messages to be written to the WAL, whose content will be synced to the disk. This process seems to incur heavy disk IO in my computer. I wonder whether the developers of Tendermint have provided any method or mode to remove the heavily used write-ahead log mechanism.
