how big is the planet loaded into postgresql?


how big is the database (bytes) with the hole planet in it?

I’ll reproduce an email from Kai Krueger to the osm-dev list a few days ago:

The file is bytes.

Database size depends on which data you are importing.

thank you,

your answer helps me to estimate the upper bound.

but do you know the size of the postgis db with all nodes, ways, relations and users loaded into ram or the binary file?
and without tiles and no xml format. i think there is a difference between the 250 gb xml and the db binary file or ram usage.
