PyOrient Client - db_size()

This method returns the size of the open database.

Getting the Database Size

Using the db_size() method, you can determine the size of a given database. It does not receive any arguments, but rather checks the database currently open on the client. To open a database, see db_open().




You might use db_size() as a sanity check in your application. For instance, you might have your application check the database size in order to determine whether or not it has been properly initialized:

client.db_open("tinkerhome", "admin", "admin_passwd")

# Fetch Size
size = client.db_size()

assert size != 0

Here, the application opens the tinkerhome database, then checks it's size. It uses an assert statement to ensure that the database is not empty.
