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 

Multiple tables:
  - SearchLog
  - PageViewLog
  - LoginLog


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?
