No values are required for lookup purposes. And the length of the keys makes surprisingly little difference to the size of the hash.

For example: For a hash with 11,881,376 keys:

  • From 5-bytes keys (the minimum required) to 14-bytes keys, the memory required remains almost static at 1.7GB.
  • From 15-bytes through 29-bytes, it goes to 1.9 GB.
  • From 30-bytes through 46-bytes, it goes to 2.1 GB.
  • from 47-bytes .... , it goes to 2.3 GB.

So if I have 11,881,376 keys with an average key size of say 250 bytes it would only be 2.3 GB? Same with 400 bytes? Or 500 bytes?
