Progress -B Setting

That's correct. 32 bit Open Edge/Progress has a 2GB limit for shared memory access for all processes.

Hi All,

We are running Vantage 8.03 406A with a 10 GB Progress database. I've been trying to increase database performance by increasing the -B buffer size above it's current setting of 180000. When I change this setting the database will start, but the database appserver will not. Is there a way I can increase the -B setting or is this the highest it will go?

Thanks,

That is pretty much it - supposedly 32 bit windows has a 2 Gb shared memory limit although I cant get the appserver to start if I cache more than around 875 Meg of the db....
