I am troubleshooting an issue I suspect is related to database size. After enabling Attachments on a feature class, there is a resultant table called FeatureClassName_attach, and that table contains a field called DATA_SIZE. What unit is this field in? No matter what unit I guess, the result seems crazy, and I can't find a definitive answer in the documentation.
DT10.2.2, SQL Server 2008R2, SDE gdb 10 & 10.2.2
I'm going to say it's bytes. Although I confirmed with IT that the database settings are indeed generous and could support absurdly large records, logic suggests these must be bytes.
I would welcome any recommendations on how to confirm.
