comment Does File Geodatabase performance degrade as it fills up?
Also, when my clients pick a tech instead of me (the consultant), I warn them of the choice they have made and then become the smart-ass consultant that reminds them of their choice. But that is me.

The reason why I give your samples and mention cursors, is that when you see a complete example of cursor usage in ArcPy, as in some of the examples here help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#//… you will see the usage of the keyword del docs.python.org/reference/simple_stmts.html#the-del-statement . My advice to you is to use the crap out of it and hope that the correct COM object goes out of scope and thus releases the zombie COM handles that are thrashing your process.

Look at Geometry Examples section here edndoc.esri.com/arcobjects/9.2/NET_Server_Doc/developer/ADF/…

FileGDB has configuration keywords, too. Some shared with ArcSDE's DBTune keywords edndoc.esri.com/arcobjects/9.2/ComponentHelp/esriGeoDatabase/… For example, you can choose for how the geometries are stored (optimized for size vs speed). I guarantee to you that the defaults are just fine. This sounds more like a different issue related to resources that stay resident in memory

ArcPy are just python wrappers on top of ArcObjects, so the same concepts apply, except that you have less explicit control of triggering the right behaviors.

comment What is the hierarchy of features in ArcGIS? Is it different in other software?
Expansing on my comment above, I guess I also would like to emphasize that there is not such a thing as a "GeoDatabase storage format." Nevertheless Personal GDB, FileGDB are file-based GDB-compliant storage formats. Even ppl at ESRI make the mistake of not doing the distinction all the time.

The increase in memory usage hints that you might be using the wrong cursor, or are leaking geometries. Can you post a sample of what you are doing?

comment What is the hierarchy of features in ArcGIS? Is it different in other software?
I wont try to explain all of it since everyone is jumping on this. What I will tell you is that a Shapefile is a storage format for spatial data that conforms to the OGC Simple Features Specification. Contrary to popular belief, The GeoDatabase is not a spatial format... it is an information model that specifies how various spatially-enabled object-relational entities interact with each other (FeatureClasses, network datasets, topologies,etc). There are various implementations of that model (Personal GDB, FileGDB, Enterprise (ArcSDE) GDB. The rest, I will leave for others :)

@Craig the UI creates a template of a Null geometry, but it will not allow you to save it. If you find a way to do it through thr UI, it is a bug.
