A lot of hosting providers use a maximum table size limit for security reasons. Does digitalocean also have a max table size or not?

Hi @thibautdm9830,

Currently, Digitalocean does not have any limitations for table size placed on the Managed Databases platform. When you have more records it is highly recommended to ensure your node size can accommodate the number of resources needed to process a larger database.

Adding to this, maxheaptablesize and tmptable_size are currently not configurable but these are something that could be implemented as user-configurable options.

You can read more about the product and limitations here:

I hope this helps!
