Subject Re: [ib-support] How to menage the PAGE SIZE value ?
Author Jason Chapman (JAC2)
The larger the page size the more records / index nodes you can fit onto a
page.
Too small and you will make your larger rows spill onto more than one page
which is a disaster.
Typical values are 4K & 8K, 4K was popular as it matched the read profile of
NT and other OS's, i.e. the OS would read in 4K blocks, so having this in
sync with the DB made for best performance.
Too large a pagesize and you will be getting a lot of extra data from disk
when you select a specific row.
Bottom line is suck it and see + ensure that when you do DB stats, that
index depth <= 3.
