I am looking to deploy our censorship monitoring scripts, one of which uses OONI's metadb [https://github.com/ooni/sysadmin/blob/master/docs/metadb-sharing.md], a PostgreSQL database with an approximate current size of 719GB.
I understand that Postgres is not the preferred database of choice but OONI uses that and so we are stuck with it. The database also has a lot of historic information so we need to query it occasionally and thus having it deployed makes it easier.
Note that this is not critical as we are making read-only queries to the database and so even if it fails, we can deploy it again.
OS: Linux Architecture: x86_64 Postgres version: 9.6
Please let me know if you have any questions about this. Thank you.
