Content db limits include remote BLOBs

It’s funny, cynical, and educational: http://www.sharepointedutech.com/2011/07/11/sharepoint-contentdb-guidance-too-many-shades-of-gray-along-with-a-little-brown/

Easy to miss, since the article is not about that, but we really liked the comment that the fact that auditing is either turned on or off has a great impact on capacity planning:

With the BLOBs remoted it’s much more likely that you’re going to hit an object density threshold (i.e. items in a list) before you reach a content db size threshold unless of course you have an enormous amount of metadata, are storing a large number of versions, or have auditing turned on…that last one always catches folks off guard and is rarely accounted for in capacity planning exercises.
