Unicode DB2 Performance

Hi guys,

I'm dealing with internationaliz ation with DB2 here.
Performance-wise, is there any difference between using vargraphic and
varchar. Say for example, if I choose between using vargraphic(32)
and varchar(64) to support 2-byte foreign characters, is there any
significant performance difference in DB2. Please let me know.

To the best of my knowledge there is no difference.
Performance gets a really interesting topic once you start considering
advanced collations (such as Thai on DB2 LUW).

Hi I need to store accented characters in a postgres (7.4) database, and access the data (mostly) using the postgres JDBC driver (from a web app). Does anyone know if: 1) Is there a performance loss using (multibyte) UNICODE vs (single byte) SQL_ASCII/LATINxxx character encoding? (In terms of extra data, and searching/sorting speeds).

As was seen in another thread, there's a great deal of confusion with regard to surrogates. Most programmers assume Python's unicode type exposes only complete characters. Even CPython's own functions do this on occasion. This leads to different behaviour across platforms and makes it unnecessarily difficult to properly support all...
