I had a stint on this project with sqlite, and although I like databases, I was (so far) under the impression storing binary data into a database is not the best way to go. For me the blob columns always felt like an add-on...

Second, the performance with sqlite (async off) was poor, and it was only munging light text data. This is why I never thought of going completely db with this. And I didn't want to install a full mysql server on the machine, just to find out that it would have the same problems.

I think using the fs is ok for ~20-30 mio. files. So, do you opt for using a db when this number grows?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
