Multi-volume database

In version 5, Progress V9.0, you have no choice. All V9 databases are multi-volume. You must either convert you V8 to multi-volume before you convert it to V9, or dump the schema and data from your V8 and load it into V9.

In V8 there are two reasons for going multi-volume: you are approaching the the single volume limit of 2Gb; or by moving volumes onto their own spindles, you may gain some performance by reducing disk contention.

I am planning to move to Ver 5 in July. I would like to go to a Multi-volume
database with version 5. Without getting into extreme detail, this is how I
think I need to go.

1. Install Progress / Vantage ver 5 on server
2. Change .st file per instructions using the prostrct command (for ver 5)
3. Then "Upgrade the Existing 4.0 database" as per instructions of the ver 5
install
4. Continue with ver. 5 instructions

Will this work? Any thing I should know about a multi-volumn database?
Thank you for your help

Nancy,

We just went multi-volume last night in Ver 4. I would think you would want
to go multi-volume in 4 before you upgrade but I would call Tech Support
with this question, they were super helpful last night. One fact the list
members should be aware of is if your Database is close to 2 gig in size you
must go multi-volume.

I am planning to move to Ver 5 in July. I would like to go to a Multi-volume
database with version 5. Without getting into extreme detail, this is how I
think I need to go.

1. Install Progress / Vantage ver 5 on server
2. Change .st file per instructions using the prostrct command (for ver 5)
3. Then "Upgrade the Existing 4.0 database" as per instructions of the ver 5
install
4. Continue with ver. 5 instructions

Will this work? Any thing I should know about a multi-volumn database?

At what point does going multi-volume help? We are around 500MB on a dual 450mhz server with 512MB ram. 24 licenses.
