Fork me on GitHub

Hello. I'm considering a migration that will clone 7,322 entities resulting in the creation of 139,337 more entities. The documentation doesn't say much in the way of any risks having this many entities may pose on a Datomic database, from the stand-point of queries, future transactions, and storage capacity.


Came here to see if there is any conventional wisdom on this matter to be found in this channel. /cc @bkamphaus


@sdegutis: thats "nothing". IIRC they recommend to limit your database to around 10 billion datoms


@ckarlsen: Sweet, we only have 5 million datoms. So that's pretty reasonable.


i have to say when you start playing with some example data of your own creation, it’s fun to create some simple nested data and then query it
