Is it true to say that with every row inserted Table size will grow by 5 M due to BLOB insertion or allocation will be 5 MB but usage will be only equal to actual length of the BLOB file uploaded in the field.
I am not able to make a difference between allocation and usage of BLOB storage.
according the doc
BLOB or BINARY LARGE OBJECT(integer [K | M | G])
For a binary large object string of the specified maximum length in bytes.
the infocenter is something that keeps all information about db2 and avoids many questions (if being used) .....
