Unanswered: Dump and Load timings for Sybase ASE 12.X
I do not have much experience with Sybase dump/load estimates.
Requesting experienced Sybase DBAs to provide some information about average time required for creating a dump (say 1GB database) on a disk and loading it into a new instance. I checked Sybase FAQ where it is mentioned that it takes about 8 minutes to dump a 1GB database on tape and no information on load. I understand that the speed could vary depending on OS specific parameters/settings. Howvere, I am looking for some experiences for dump/load timings to/from disk for a mid-size Solaris setup.
Requesting to share any related experiences.
How long does it take you to copy a 1 GB file
The uncompressed Sybase dump should take close to the same time
And if you compress it will also depend on your CPU speed
Then check how long does it take to gzip a 1 GB file
Note: Sybase at default compression = gzip at min compression (gzip -1)
