EFF File Size Limitation
« on: July 01, 2020, 09:20:03 AM »
Is there an EFF file size limitation in ProvideX 9.10 running on an ext4 filesystem on CentOS release 6.10 (Final) ?

The current file size is:
-rwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 8422461440 Jul  1 08:18 SONNN

I am getting an Error 16 trying to write additional records to the file.

TIA,
Dan

Dan,

We run on Windows so I'm not sure if there are any additional CentOS limitations, but, from a PxPlus standpoint, it will depend on the block size of the file. Check out https://manual.pvxplus.com/PXPLUS/directives/create_table.htm
I'm pretty sure this will apply as far back as PVX9.10 - Looks like your file currently has a block size of 4K

ChrisKCAi,
Thank you for the quick reply.

The block size on that file is 4096K.
Based on the create_table.htm the file has reached the max file size.

Thank you for your help, I appreciate it.

Dan
