I have a (postgresql-9.3)-table that contains images as a bytea-column as well as several other columns that contain extracted information from these images. (Some feature points, descriptors). These values are currently stored in the DB because they are computationally rather expensive, so that I want to cache them in the DB.
However, I do not want to integrate these columns in the backup (or the WAL files) as they are rather large. Is there a way to do this or should I rather try another approach (as e.g. writing the additional data to the filesystem)?
