Estimate for altering a table
I need to provide an estimate of Migrating application to the next version.
This migration involves lot of changes in the Tables. So i need to find out how much time it takes.
So can u please help me with ur experience.
1. How much time will it take to add a column or one or more columns to a big Table.
( please tell me with ur experience on the no. of rows and the time taken to add a column or more)
2. How long to delete a column
3. Have u experience any case where creating a new table is faster instead of altering the Table if we are going to add more than 10 rows
Please do help me out.
You really have to test it. Either on a full size system or a smaller subset and extrapolate the results.
You'll look a right spoon when its taking much longer that you said and your excuse is "some guys on the interfloppy said it would be much quicker than this"
