> Arg! I'm creating indexes too large again! (not the first time I've done this). Robin, Vern, any guidance? I generally really like how the metrics framework is implemented now and I'd like to build on top of the current model but I obviously don't want to cause overly extensive performance problems.
>From my reading of the CompHash code, there's a general problem with it assuming it can use a fixed hash key size in situations where it can't and you just innocently found one of those situations. Performance consideration of the metrics indexing scheme is a second thing (depends somewhat on how the first thing is fixed).
