Dbspaces, chunks and naming conventions

Chunk naming conventions

  • Avoid naming chunk links after the underlying disk structure
  • Avoid naming chunk links after databases
  • Avoid naming chunk links after servers and/or machines
  • Avoid naming chunk links sequentially (chk1, chk2)
  • Avoid naming chunks by size (chk_2g_12)
  • Best strategy, build chunk link names from Dbspace name (NOT ordinal dbspace number!) and Ordinal chunk # within the dbspace
