How does influx db store string internally?


I’m writing a memory sensitive application, and I want to know approximately what the marginal size of adding an additional UTF-8 encoded character to the db is. Specifically, if I write a character with a UTF code less than 128, does it require the same disk space as a character with a UTF code greater than 128? Is it approximately 1 byte per character?

Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you

Hello @Kamyar_Ghiam,
What version of InfluxDB are you using?

I don’t know if these threads are helpful

Ah yes those threads are helpful. Thanks!
