production telephony call detail record collection system that had in
excess of 500mb cached in mnesia and performed well. Perhaps one of the
other people that still works with that project can give figures for

I'm planing 50-70 Mbytes stored in mnesia database. I hope
this is still considered "sane" size? What are the upper limits where
system can still be called "production quality" in terms of dB speed?

Another question. Reading Joe's Robust server (bank server example), I
found this interesting:

[E] ->
    B = E#account.balance,
		{ok, B}

Why not skip B and send {ok, E#account.balance} in the fist place?

Thanks, Damir.
