Calculating the size of the database in memory
Dec 5, 2011 4:36 AM
I am using BDB 5.1.19 with BTREE as an access method.
I would like to calculate the memory footprint that would be needed for that.
I followed the following doc:
useful-bytes-per-page = (page-size - page-overhead) * page-fill-factor
bytes-of-data = n-records *
(bytes-per-entry + page-overhead-for-two-entries)
n-pages-of-data = bytes-of-data / useful-bytes-per-page
total-bytes-on-disk = n-pages-of-data * page-size
I am not interested in calculating the size on disk but just in memory.
Would the following be enough:
bytes-of-data = n-records *(bytes-per-entry + page-overhead-for-two-entries)
Since the rest is only for space on disk i don't need it, is that correct?
Would this calculation help me also to calculate the cache size or is the cache size influenced by the page size?

This is not a replication question and those of us monitoring this forum are not the best people to answer this question. You'll probably get a better and faster answer if you post it to the general Berkeley DB forum:
