Introducing OpenEdge Management and OpenEdge Explorer : Optionally configuring the OpenEdge Management Trend Database
 

Optionally configuring the OpenEdge Management Trend Database

After you install OpenEdge Management and before you begin the configuration in the OpenEdge Management console (as described in Setting Up OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer for the First Time), you can preallocate file system space in the OpenEdge Management Trend Database. This preallocation step is optional; however, it will make the database run more efficiently if you create fixed length extents before the database is created.
To preallocate file system space:
1. Copy the OpenEdge Management Trend Database structure file (fathom.st) that exists in <OpenEdgeManagement-install-dir>\db to the directory where the database will reside. (The default OpenEdge Management install directory is Progress\oemgmt.)
2. Edit the file, and add fixed length data extents to area 7.
3. Continue with the configuration as described in Setting Up OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer for the First Time. When the OpenEdge Management Trend Database is created, the database uses the structure file that exists in the directory where the database is being created.
For more information about editing .st files, see OpenEdge Data Management: Database Administration.
