Yes, disk space is cheap, but not as cheap as we can afford here...
I have a VAX system clustered with 2 Alpha, and I don't have a lot of disk
space on the VAX (locally I mean) where my pagefile is.
If I keep the pgflquo higher than it needs to be, people on the VAX who
enter TPU with a very big file end up clogging my VAX pagefile and the
system almost hangs. Developpers are using the VAX.
After it happened twice I started to tweak pgflquota so that cannot happen
I share SYSUAF between the VAX and the Alphas.
It's not always as easy as it seems
Since I cannot figure how many pages I actually need, I'll go by trial an
Thanks to all
