Another growth milestone for RubyForge - the database now contains over 30 million records. This is up from 20 million records just 5 months ago, which means that the database is growing at around 60K records per day. The biggest table is
gem_downloads, which contains over 12M records. Fortunately we don't do much querying of this table, just lots and lots of inserts. The next largest table is
frs_dlstats_file which gets mostly inserts, too, except for the nightly stats runs.
As always, the excellent PostgreSQL database engine continues to handle the load without problems. Go PostgreSQL!
