Not sure how to figure it out, but this is the reply I got from
Support about the "ideal" scatter factor and when a dump -n- load
should be performed.

"Progress recommends that a "perfect" database would be at 1.0. Its
pretty impossible to get that, however, and they say that 2.0-3.0 is
recommended."

What is the procedure for measuring the scatter factor of a progress
database?
At what scatter factor should a dump & load be performed?
