Subject Why is the actual size of a database 4 times larger than the netto payload?
Date Wed, 24 Mar 2010 08:29:59 GMT
Hi all,

when I store 1000 copies of a pure JSON document (size 245,310 Bytes) in
a freshly created database,
the database itself is 0.9 GB big.

That is almost 4 times bigger than the actual netto payload.

Is this normal? 
When I'll move parts of the document in attachments,
will I also see this 4 times increase?

Thanks in advance,
