Chapter 15: Overview of Disk Resource Issues

This chapter discusses some basic issues that determine how you allocate and use disk resources with Adaptive Server.

Responsibility for storage allocation and management is often centralized, and usually, the System Administrator has ultimate control over the allocation of disk resources to Adaptive Server and the physical placement of databases, tables, and indexes on those resources.
