Issue/Introduction

How do I find the polled item count for use in the sizing wizard?

Environment

All supported releases

Resolution

1. Access adminTools and choose: 2 Connect to Database


2. Find your schema (you will use this in place of $schema in any of the below calls that mention it):

\dn

Example:

dradmin=> \dn
        List of schemas
    Name    |  Owner  | Comment
------------+---------+---------
 v_internal | dradmin |
 v_catalog  | dradmin |
 v_monitor  | dradmin |
 public     | dradmin |
 v_func     | dradmin |
 v_txtindex | dradmin |
 dauser     | dauser  |    <--- Schema
(7 rows)


3. Check for the overall database item count:

select count(*) from $schema.v_poll_item;

Example:

dradmin=> select count(*) from dauser.v_poll_item;
 count
-------
   936   <--- What you target in the sizing wizard
(1 row)
