Sorry, I am jumping into this without enough context, but ...

There are problems where a simple sequential log file is superior to a
database table. The above looks like a log ... a very large number of
events, without an immediate customer. For sequential access, a simple file
is *vastly* superior to a database table.

If you are thinking about indexed access to the above as a table, think
about the cost of adding items to the index, for that many items. The cost
of building the index is not small. Running a map/reduce on sequential
files might be faster.

Again, I do not have enough context, but ... 25 million rows?
