Reduced Database Size Requirements
Question: Does the size of your GainSeeker database become the topic of discussion more often than not? I know we all wish our servers could be big, powerful, and the capacity size of King Kong. The key word being “wish.” Nevertheless we do the best we can with what we have. Either way I’m sure you are wondering how can version 8.6 help?
Answer: With GainSeeker 8.6, we reduced the database size for MS SQL, MySQL, and MariaDB. By utilizing variable-length records instead of fixed-length records we reduced the size of some of our tables! This requires your IT person being comfortable with SQL scripting along with some System Administration changes. To find more information on this check out our help file.
