I'm trying to determine if/when APW's are being stretched. Currently we have one running - I know this should be probably be more, I just need to justify it.
Currently within promon the 'Writes by APW' sits at a nice 98%, a sample of an hour is the same...

I have a question regarding after-image file sizes; basically i'd essentially like to reduce the size of the AI files that we transport to DR. Is this at all possible?
Our process runs every 15 minutes and over a course of a 24hour period the total...
We're looking at doing some spring cleaning on our database and want to look at removing some indexes. We plan to monitor the _IndexStat over the next month or so and see what Indexes are being used and which aren't.
Currently i've run a few tests and wanted to check what the fields...

I'm looking at creating an incremental .df file programatically. I Started to use a .bat file, but my knowledge isnt great but the benefit is that you can use dump_inc.p easily; which i have done.

Just a quick question; Is there a way to deactivate indexes quickly (by command) or in bulk?

Were using OE10.2B on Windows server 2008 64bit.
Firstly, i'm probably going about this the wrong way so a nudge in the right direction would be nice. I'm trying to determine whether a table is sat in the wrong storage area and would benefit by being moved to something a little more...
I was wondering whether someone could possibly help.
We are wanting to add an index to our database so it would be nice to have after-imaging switched off whilst this goes ahead. When we use aioff then probkup enableai, the AI sequence starts again at 1.
Is there a way to stop AI...
