FlatBuffers and LongStrings

Post by jdorlon » Fri 26 Mar 2021 19:52

Hello,

In the documentation, here https://www.devart.com/odac/docs/increa ... rmance.htm

It says that I can tweak performance by setting the FlatBuffers and LongString properties. I read the documentation to see what these settings do. My question is, is there negative consequence of setting them?

thanks
John

The use of FlatBuffers increases memory consumption because for a 2,000 byte column, 2,000 bytes of memory will be allocated, regardless of the size of data stored in the column.
