in thread PSQL and many queries

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?

[Corion]: marto: Thanks for pointing me to Tinc - I found at least some article that suggests that what I want would be possible with Tinc. Now I can try that out :)
[marto]: I think you can do what you want without too much hassle, but yeah, please try and let me know if it works well :)
[marto]: sadly I've still not remembered the name of that x86 all in one we discussed
[Corion]: marto: Heh - I looked at the Intel things and they were all at EUR 80 or upwards, and that's a bit too much (or rather, for that money, I'd look for a NAS already)
[marto]: click bait marketing is making it harder to find stuff I can't remember based upon a few terms :(
[Corion]: :)
