Frequently asked question

Why does the compression of states take so long for large state_lineages tables?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The compression takes a long time if many records are deleted. Currently, the delete operation requires a full table scan for each record. This operation is optimized to perform a range scan for the delete, vastly improving the performance of the compress operation.
