Hey Friends,

I recently came across a question which asks to approximate the data volume of a table which contains 10 Million records.

Any idea on how to do it?

Thanking You In Advance.

It depends on the storage engine, field types, encoding. Check this link: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/storage-requirements.html

My Last Question:

Is there any formula to calculate data volumes?

If you check the comments at the end of the page, of the posted link, you will find some perl scripts to do such calculations ;)

Thanks cereal, Ur a genius ;-)
