Feedback: query exact row count from tables and views

paul's profile image paul posted 3 months ago in General Permalink

Hi, I like to use the nightly builds and noticed this new feature. I would like to suggest making this an option that can be switched off (if it is already, I can't find it)

It can take several seconds to perform COUNT(*) on some very large tables (100 million rows+) and I don't really mind if the row count is approximate.

Thanks!

I marked that modification "experimental", as I already expected issues with large tables. I chould indeed make it optional, and by default turned off. But it's probably the best to revert that modification, as this was anyway more a cosmetic change.

Thanks for reverting it - best to make it optional.
