VDatabase Files Organization

Data is stored in a ValentinaDB database accordingly:

  • database structure (the description of the database structure)
  • primary data (user data)
  • binary objects (BLOBs), actually they are data too, but because of their size they are payed particular attention on them.
  • temporary data. In case of a system failure all temporary data will be destroyed when you open a database next time.
  • secondary data. These usually are indexes. They are built by DBMS using primary data. Secondary data can be considered as temporary data with a long-time persistence. They can be destroyed anytime and built again.
