    Unanswered: Sybase ASE Customer Environment

    Hi,


    Iam working as a QA Engineer for a Storage Management Product.
    Our product collect storage details of Sybase ASE.
    I have few questions on my mind....
    1. What are the most common and highly used Sybase ASE Version and OS
    combinations in customer environment? (Like Sybase 12 on Windows 2000
    SP4....etc)
    2. Now we do collect storage details of Sybase Instances, Databases,
    Devices, Segments, Users and tables. Is it necessary to collect details
    about any other Sybase ASE objects? If so why?
    3. Do we have different types of Sybase ASE configurations in customer
    environment?


    Could any one answer my questions please....


    Thanks,
    Bindhu

    1. ASE 12.0 and 12.5 are common installations. The largest install base is on Sun Solaris, although that is changing and AIX is catching up.

    2. Hard to say, I guess depends on what you are trying to do? From a storage perspective all that you are collecting seems ample enough.

    3. Usually at any one customer site, people tend to standardized on the configuration and all servers are configured similarly for simplicity. Compared to other sites, this is never true.

    Thanks a lot...
    Another doubt yet.
    1. Will the indexes and Stored Procedures take a greater part in storage aspect?
    2. Do Sybase customers have their Sybase databases on cluster environments?

    Hi

    1) Indexes do take storage space, it depends on the data that is populated in the table. Stored Procedures storage is very minimal when compared to indexes and tables, rather consider it negligible.

    2) Yes

    Sybase supplies their own version of High Availability that works with the cluster subsystem. This is an extra license $ on top of the RDBMS.

    Most people simply use the OS level cluster scripts to manage failover. The only reason you would want to buy a Sybase HA is for client side application failover .
