[Xapian-discuss] Expected IndexSize/DataSize Ratio

When running a simple indexing test, I noticed that Xapian generates a
 ~74 MB index database for ~24 MB of data.

Is that the expected Index-To-Data size ratio?

Is there a way to make the index smaller?

Thanks everyone who cares to reply.


P.S.Test borrowed from Xapian's example, SimpleIndex.cc -- running
under Windows / compiled with Visual Studio.
