How can I tell if my DXgrid datastore is filling up, and what can I do
when it gets full?

 

Environment

 

Release:
Component: ETRDIR

 

Resolution

 

When a DXgrid datastore is created, it's size is fixed. It will not
automatically increase in size. Therefore, when a DXgrid datastore
increases in size past 60% full, there are a variety of alarms that
are generated by the DSA informing you to the fact that the data
hosted in the DXgrid file is increasing. These alarms will continue to
the generated as the datastore fills. The purpose of this techdoc is
to inform you of the alarms that you will see and how you can extend
the size the of the datastore once it grows to 100% full.

When a DXgrid datastore is created, the creation process will read the
DXgrid size parameter either from the:

DXmanager XML configuration

The "dxgrid-db-size" configuration parameter in the ASCII text
configuration files (when using DXnewdb)

Once the creation process has read the DXgrid size, it will commence
to create the datastore ".db" file on disk There are alarms that will
be triggered when a DXgrid datastore grows past 60% full. If the
datastore increases past 60% full, the DSA will trigger additional
alarms at 5% intervals. So in the DSAs alarm log you will see:

If you are happen to logged into DSA console (aka DXconsole), you
would see:

DXconsole sample

The resolution to this issue is to extend the DXgrid data store. This
can be achieved using the DXtool called "dxextenddb". The process for
extending a datastore is as follows:

Shutdown the DSA
 
Edit the dxgrid-db-size parameter within the DSA's initialization file
(DXHOME/config/servers/{dsaName.dxi})
 
Run "dxextenddb {dsaName}"
 
Restart the DSA

Once the DXgrid datastore has been extended and restarted, you can
continue adding or modifying entries.

As an addendum, modifying the trace levels in the DSA's trace log will
provide you with additional information when the datastore is getting
full. Setting a trace level of "warn,error" will generate additional
information similar to that listed below:
