Maximum size in Postgresql?

on 1/15/14, 12:34 AM 3,183 views

We are using Postgresql for Openerp. What is the total size of postgresql for openerp?

I meant, i have lots of files. I want to attach these files in my knowledge module in openerp, the size of the files more than 1gb.

So i want to know the maximum size in Postgresql database.

I have too many files with each having size less than 250MB. I am going to upload this as attachment (binary) format. But I have two worries now. 1. Is this going create any performance issue? Can I do some thing to scale up the database to perform seamless? 2. Is this going to create any issue regarding space availability? Is harddisk size the limit of postgre sql?

You can use those attachments, it will not be a problem.

@Remya: as the database size increases it will create performance issues, if your db is in a remote server. But if you are using it in a local machine it will not be a problem.

I suggest you to store files into a folder instead of DB if you have a lot .

See here : https://accounts.openerp.com/forum/Help-1/question/529


If i prefer to store files in database, then will it be any problem?
