OT?: Partition the tables? (Re: DBIx::Class with two kinds of otherwise identical table types)
in thread DBIx::Class with two kinds of otherwise identical table types
Right now partitioning is a hypothetical, a way to handle a few huge towns in a mass of small towns. But since you've given me a name to the method, I can do searches and I found this url, which though elusive, gives me a couple new pointers in Yann's comment.
In other cases, a Dr. Chris Cole was using partitioned tables, because of the sheer size of his data sets (~90M rows/month). Link is here.
