Subject AW: [firebird-support] performance question
Author Olaf Kluge
Hi Mark,

thank you. I will try the first solution.

Best regards.


Your second solution would amount to you creating a database in a
database. It also means that on every request Firebird will have to
retrieve the string as is, and then split that every time. I assume that
using Firebird as a real database and storing the data in separate fields
will yield better performance: you only need to split the data on storage
time, not on each load.

But if you want to know for certain: try both approaches and measure it,
but then you could just as well use a flatfile to store this data instead
of a database.
