LargeBuffer Query


#1

Hi,

I currently use the LargeBuffer as part of an spi transfer process. The size of the LargeBuffer can be changed from a database setting. I was wondering if I change the size to say 100KB, is there an issue in still using Largebuffer? I know the documentation states it is usually used when you need buffers larger than 700KB.

Even in general, is there a performance hit in declaring and using LargeBuffers?

@ Chris_MC - you can use small buffers, they will still live in custom heap and need to me managed manually.

Thanks Gus, just wanted to make there was no issue declaring a LargeBuffer with a smallish size.
