Our TD system has a block size of 512 bytes.
I did a simple test like below
CREATE MULTISET TABLE testvarchar (col1 VARCHAR(510));
Ideally, when I insert a text with 510 characters, it should still hold within a single datablock (510 characters + 2 presence and offset bytes).
But according to my test here, I could not fit anything more than 431 characters into a single datablock.
I also tried inserting NULLs and I could fit in only 25 NULLs in col1 in one datablock, whereas I would have expected around 255 nulls.
Am I missing something here?
I'm doing these as a part of my evaluation using varchars vs char/ compress. I will be really grateful if you can point out an algorithm that you have implemented in this regard.
