Subject Reasonable range for the max number of tables?
Date Mon, 04 Aug 2014 19:42:18 GMT
What's a reasonable range for the max number of tables?  We have an
append-only table system and I've been thinking of moving them to using
hourly / partitioned tables.

This means I can do things like easily drop older tables if I run out of
disk space.  It also means that I can fadvise the most recent tables and
force them into table cache.

But what's the max number of tables?  If I'm doing hourly tables and have
30 days of them this would be 720 individual tables.

That sounds reasonable… but what's the upper bound here?
