[GE users] ARCo Database size question

I'm testing importing a 1.9GB reporting file into a new ARCo MySQL database.

dbwriter is still chugging along (although it has crashed a few times with " dbwriter.ReportingDBWriter.run|E|Uncaught exception: Java heap space")

Querying the database, it appears that the bulk of the data has been inserted.

At this point, the database is taking up more than 12GB of disk space.

Is this normal for ARCo to use more than 6 times the size on disk of the reporting file?

Are Oracle or PostgreSQL any better?
