Re: InstantDB: how to make it faster


Doug

An indexed lookup, testing for equality,  will run at probably the same
speed regardless of the data type. InstantDB uses hash indexes instead of
b-trees so all comparisons are integer comparisons.

How big is the table and how slow is the lookup?

Regards

Pete
