Information in this document applies to any platform.


Goal is to change poid_type from strings to numbers to save about 30% of the entire size of BRM database.

At present, Poid Types are strings stored in many tables. There are in total 4000 different object types, which could be stored as a unique ID and the % of space which can be saved is even higher for big tables such as EVENT_T (27%), ITEM_T (41%), PURCHASED_PRODUCT_T (32%) etc

Expected result:
All object types should not be stored as strings but be referenced with number.

Actual result:
All object types are really long strings.
