Too many choices. We all know that ASA runs on just about every platform
out there. Given this, I was wondering what platform (i.e HP / Sun /
Windows, etc) would provide the best performance. Has anyone ever loaded
ASA onto a 8 way Solaris box with a 50 GB database ? What about a mammoth
HP-UX installation. I would like to hear any large database stories and
what the size and platform you are running on is. The reason I ask is that
we are embarking on a project that could lead to a 50 GB database. Would
it be practical to load this onto 1 machine (like a Sun box) with 6 or 8
processors and 32 GB RAM? Would it be wise to let the DB run under 1 big
honkin UFS file? Does ASA use multi processors efficiently. Thanks for
any thoughts on this. From what I can see so far ASA has an awesome
product that requires little maintenance !!!

Hi Jerry

The sybase.public.sqlanyhwere.general is probably a better group for this Q.
