Should I Avoid Compressing Database Files?

#1

These are questions asked in the context of the proposed architecture described in the forum thread titled, "Sample JDO Architecture for Follow Up Questions".

 

I saw a forum statement, which I can't find now, that led me to believe that ObjectDB database files do not compress well (in general, my architecture usage may be different).  I plan on NOT compressing NOR trying to reclaim unused space in ObjectDB database files when I back them up or restore them from a backup.

Do you have an experienced opinion on this approach?

It depends on the content in the database files, but usually you can save a lot of space by compression.

It should be very easy to check...
