Video Series: Monitoring Part 3 – Storage Areas

Are you using fixed length extents in your OpenEdge database? What happens if they fill? Will anybody notice?

At White Star Software, we generally prefer all variable length extents, but we know that there are some environments that are better off using fixed extents. And if that’s you, then you should probably know how to keep tabs on those extents.

In this video, Tom explains how to monitor extent size and usage so you don’t get a 3:00 AM surprise that the database is down!

    Nice Tom – I am glad you have backed down from the set it and forget it. A better message, small and medium, all variable is fine, larger customers not so much.
