-- advatage BLOB or file on file system --

P: n/a
I have some problems. It's dilemma between BLOB, BFILE and takes care of
file on file system. What it's advantage??

I import some PDF document in BLOB filed in my database. It's about 1000
documents on day.

My first question is: if I have a PDF on file system about 100 kb and if I
import this in BLOB field in database. How much it's take more recourse.

How I can measure largeness of BLOB field or how I can measure spacious of
the table?
