My Promax Platform database is full and states that, "Database is xx.xx % Full, Platform Stability will degrade when Full”.
The Platform Database is not the size of the storage that contains the data/media housed on the server.
The Promax Platform fills up the database the with based on the amount of:
a.) Platform Spaces
d.) LTO Tapes
e.) Indexed Spaces
The immediate way to clear up database space:
a.) Remove tapes from the Catalog. You may force sync a tape later to re-add the tape into the catalog.
b.) Remove a platform space from search. Turn off indexing on a space by right-clicking on the Platform Space and go to Properties. Uncheckmark the Search function.
The only ultimate way to gain a larger database size:
Purchase a SQL Standard License.
This is not an issue that Promax can resolve by making a database smaller. The SQL license is a hardcoded license for database size limit and purchasing a license will create a larger limit that the database can grow into.
