Table Block Mapping For Type I Areas

Many people know of the perils of record scatter and fragmentation with Type I areas. This tool provides an easy way to determine how scattered your data is and present that information in an easy to view HTML format. Primarily I use this tool to explain to non technical clients and managers why we need to migrate data from Type I to Type II areas.

You specify which tables are to be mapped by passing which areas or tables to the tool. CAN-DO style lists are supported in order to easily exclude larger tables from the list.

OpenEdge Database Advisor

The OpenEdge Database Advisor is intended to provide a quick checkup for common database configuration issues. Obviously proper tuning for an application requires much more than any tool can provide, but the advisor should highlight some of the most common low hanging fruit.

For best results you will need a recent database analysis file (proutil -C dbanalys) and you should run this against your production database. A large portion of the suggestions will be based on VST information that will differ greatly between your production and test environments.
