Subject storage space issue and field length
Author Francesco Lamonica
Hi, i am planning a database to hold network traffic measurement data
(notably bandwidth and number of packets)
since i will have to store at least three months worth of data the sheer
extimate in terms of bytes is around 2TB.
I am wondering if limiting the precision of numerical data fields will help
keep the db size at reasonable levels. e.g. using 16bit fileds vs 32bit
