ST_MemSize — Restituisce il tipo di geometria per il valore ST_Geometry.


integer ST_MemSize(geometry geomA);


Restituisce il tipo di geometria per il valore ST_Geometry.

This complements the PostgreSQL built-in database object functions pg_column_size, pg_size_pretty, pg_relation_size, pg_total_relation_size.


pg_relation_size which gives the byte size of a table may return byte size lower than ST_MemSize. This is because pg_relation_size does not add toasted table contribution and large geometries are stored in TOAST tables.

pg_total_relation_size - includes, the table, the toasted tables, and the indexes.

pg_column_size returns how much space a geometry would take in a column considering compression, so may be lower than ST_MemSize

Questa funzione supporta il 3d e non distrugge gli z-index.

Questo metodo supporta le Curve e le Circular String.

Questa funzione supporta le Polyhedral Surface.

Questa funzione supporta i Triangoli e le Triangulated Irregular Network Surfaces (TIN).

Changed: 2.2.0 name changed to ST_MemSize to follow naming convention.
