Subject Storage format
Date Mon, 01 Mar 2010 18:50:12 GMT
I've been looking at the source, but not quite find the things I'm looking
for, so I have a few
Are columns for a row stored in a serialized data structure on disk or
stored individually and
put into a data structure when the call is being made? Because of the slice
query, does that
mean that all columns have to be read in before any are being sent back?
If that is the case, could it be more efficient to  use rows instead of
columns for storing for
example indexes and you just want to get a few at a time?

Regards Erik
