Subject Re: should i use compression?
Date Wed, 03 Apr 2013 14:18:10 GMT
Thanks,
    is there any specific compression that is recommended of the use case i have?
   Since my values are all null will compression help?
   
 I am thinking of using prefix data_block_encoding..
Sincerely,
Prakash Kadel
