hi all,
when I run sp_helpdb DBNAME, it seems that there are 50-60 Mbytes raw disk spaces left without use in every raw device. I am using ASE 11.9.2 and unixware 7.1.2. There is a sample like below ;

device_fragments size usage free kbytes
---------------- ---- ----- -----------
synop_dat01 1953.0 MB data only 59520
synop_dat02 1953.0 MB data only 60736
synop_dat03 1953.0 MB data only 60624
synop_dat04 1953.0 MB data only 60496
synop_dat05 2000.0 MB data only 63248
synop_dat06 1953.0 MB data only 61712
synop_dat07 2000.0 MB data only 52544
synop_dat08 2000.0 MB data only 59072
synop_dat09 2000.0 MB data only 64000
synop_dat10 2000.0 MB data only 63984
synop_dat11 2046.0 MB data only 64992
synop_dat12 2046.0 MB data only 64560
synop_dat13 2046.0 MB data only 65216
synop_dat14 2046.0 MB data only 65008
synop_dat15 2046.0 MB data only 64576
synop_dat16 2046.0 MB data only 1301024
synop_dat17 2046.0 MB data only 2095104
synop_dat18 2046.0 MB data only 2095104

is there any idea why ASE couldn't use 50-60 Mbyte free space? Is there any way to use free space that left?
