UNIX-DATABASE SIZE

                   * UNIX DATABASE SURVEY *

My company maintains serveral large UNIFY databases.
As such, the database product we use must allow
for such sizes without too many negative side effects.

        Many if not all of the UNIX-BASED Database
        products we've looked at claim that their development is
        geared toward large databases, BUT how large is LARGE.

In an effort to determine a current WORKING DEFINITION of LARGE,
I'm collecting info on currently running large databases
that are AT LEAST 800 MegaBytes in size. This definition pertains
strictly to the actual size of the database file alone IN BYTES
{not indexes}.

TO PARTICIPATE:
fire-off a one line mailer consisting of the following:

[machine type :: OS version :: database :: database release:: FILE SIZE]

MULTI-VOLUME
Please indicate if you are utilizing multi-volume distribution on
several disks by adding up the volumes and appending [MV::n]
where n == the number of volumes, to the end of the mailer line above.

                ///////////////////////////////////
                /// MAIL TO                     ///
                ///                             ///

                ///                             ///
                ///////////////////////////////////
If you have already mailed per my last request, please
remail. To few people followed the format above and therfore
made it difficult to use the data.
I will summarize and REPOST results to this GROUP.
