Laying the Database Foundation
This blueprints outlines the necessary steps to ensure that Wintermute's database framework is properly configured to be used with the rest of the system.
Each neuron can be stored small or large, it does not matter
neurons are inside a network, so they have input and output, and a relation to a neuron
Now those with minor experience would say, you cannot store it all, especially when we are building a huge network inside a database, however we can queue storage and limit storage operations by collecting multiple and store them per interval or queue size.
Maybe mysql is not the best server for this... I would prefer to use one that can make use of multiple CPU cores.
In the end a DBMS is file storage, if you can afford a little uncertainty, all storage operations can simply be written to CSV
So whatever the grand design of things may become, do not worry about IO performance.
