[erlang-questions] clarify: why is Mnesia not fit for large databases
Thu Dec 6 00:18:56 CET 2007
In the recent discussion about BDB, several prominent
members of the community were of the opinion that Mnesia is
not fit for large databases.
Is this still the case with fragmented tables?
It was also suggested that for large volumes of stored,
rarely consulted data, something like mysql is better, and
Mnesia should be kept for realtime session data.
What about when the realtime session tables are getting
huge? Any reason not to use Mnesia in that case?
Can someone clarify in what precisely makes Mnesia unfit for
large databases? Is it scalability? Bugs? Maintenance hell?
