Subject Multiple tables vs big fat table
Date Fri, 18 Nov 2011 21:29:42 GMT
Is it better to have many smaller tables are one larger table? For 
example if we wanted to store user action logs we could do either of the 
following:

Multiple tables:
  - SearchLog
  - PageViewLog
  - LoginLog

or

One table:
   - ActionLog where the key could be a concatenation of the action type 
ie (search, pageview, login)

Any ideas? Are there any performance considerations on having multiple 
smaller tables?

Thanks
