Issue/Introduction

Does CA View have a limit on the number of bytes that a PDF file can have?  

Is there a limit to the number for PDF files that can be stored in one database?  

Would the PDF files be accessed via the CA OM Web Viewer browser? 

Is there another way to view them? 

Environment

Release :

Component : CA View

Resolution

PDF files can be stored in a View database, utilizing a SARFSS collector to process the files. 


View has no limit on the number of bytes that a file can contain, with the only real limit being the availability of space on the database. 


Reports can be written directly to tape, skipping being put on the disk layer. 


There is no limit on the number of any files, PDF or otherwise, that can be stored in one View database. 


The PDF files can only be viewed using CA OM Web Viewer, as they are stored in the database as a blob of data and viewing them as text will not work.
