    What is "dgr"?

    The "scatter factor" as reported by proutil dbName -C tabanlys is a measure of how far apart blocks containing records for a table are. In type 2 areas it is mostly a pointless metric. (And everyone should have all of their data in type 2 areas...)

    For a much more detailed discussion: 123 Scatter!
