Maximum Squishdot Posts
Squishdot Posted by John Hendow on Wednesday November 03, 12:22AM, 1999
from the how many is dept.
Does anyone know the maximum number of posts that can be stored in a regular old .fs file?
Everything will break eventually, right? I was wondering how Squishdot would hold up under heavy-duty pounding... say 10,000 hits a week for the next year?

I have a client who is interested in a threaded discussion group. They are are concerned about the robustness of Squishdot. Specifically, they want to know approximately how many posts can be managed by the engine, and how many total posts can be stored before things start to break.
Anybody ever performed load sims or anything? I would like to reassure them that it can handle in excess of 10K hits/week and still handle responsively. What if the database gets really really big? How long does the search process take?
Since the database isn't very readable in its .fs form, can it be exported to SQL or something?

I would appreciate any thoughts on this. Thanks!

    The only limit I can think of is the 2GB file size limit that the Linux ext2fs imposes on its files -- if your ZODB data.fs file hits this limit, then you might want to use an ALPHA which IIRC, doesn't have this limit. IIRC, someone one (Ian?) on the Squishdot mailing list may have more to say about this...
