Jim C. Nasby mentioned :
=> Are you seeing much gain using ztext over using EXTENDED?
When storage is defined external, there is a visible gain,
but not really significant enough to make me want to use it.
And I had instances where not all the rows would uncompress again
afterwards. I want to try and get the bzip2 compression working, and
see if that does anything for me. But at this stage, I think it's as compressed
as I will be able to get it.
I'm not getting the best results, because a lot of the data rows don't contain
enough data to compress properly, and I think with ztext the column sizes sometimes
end up bigger than they were to start off with.
