2.12.1.3 VARLEN Column Memory Requirements

  • For HeatWave nodes, a VARLEN-encoded column value requires enough memory for the data plus two bytes for length information. Internal fragmentation or headers can affect the actual amount of memory required.

  • There is no memory requirement on the MySQL DB System node, apart from a small memory footprint for metadata.
