By default, LOB store in line or out of line?
Date: Sat, 21 Apr 2012 23:34:01 +0800
According to the Doc as below:
*Oracle® Database Application Developer's Guide - Large Objects
10g Release 2 (10.2)*
Part Number B14249-01
In Chapter 4 there are 2 graph：
1. LOB values are stored out-of-line when any of the following situations apply:
*By default. That is, if you do not specify a LOB parameter for the LOB
storage clause when you create the table.*
2. ENABLE or DISABLE STORAGE IN ROW Clause
You use the ENABLE | DISABLE STORAGE IN ROW clause to indicate whether the LOB should be stored inline (in the row) or out-of-line.
You may not alter this specification once you have made it: if you ENABLE STORAGE IN ROW, then you cannot alter it to DISABLE STORAGE IN ROW and vice versa.
*The default is ENABLE STORAGE IN ROW.*
Document error? Which one is the TRUTH? or I misunderstanding something?
Based on our test, even every LOB has only 2080bytes(less than 4000bytes), LOB is stored OUT of line, but dba_lobs.in_row=YES.
