I'm more interested in understanding when I should use materialized
eg. I should be more concerned about memory or cpu cycles and what
should be taken as a reference to consider memory needs "large"?
If for example I was going to split a large TEXT into a set of
record (let's say I'm processing csv that has been loaded into a
text field)... I'd consider the CPU use "light" but the memory needs
"large". Would be this task suited for the materialized mode?
Is there a rule of thumb to chose between one mode or the other?
