Firstly, Happy New Year!
Here’s a scenario we see commonly enough~:
A customer enforces mail quotas. The customer also uses DAOS.
And the question arises which type of quota enforcement (within their transaction log settings) should they be using?
Well good question.
Firstly one would likely check the help here.
One would also note that (generally) it is recommended to use “Check space used in file when adding a note”, as it doesn’t require administrative intervention to reduce the size with a compact. This means that quotas will apply to logical sizes of mailfiles.
But what if the customer wants their quotas to apply to the physical size rather than the logical size (i.e. set Check File Size when extending the File”)?
This is possible, however I don’t think how it applies is particularly intuitive.
It should be noted that this applies to the “Disk Space” size within the Application/Database properties and not the “Physical Size” as it appear within the Admin Client.
A screenshot below helps demonstrate what we mean here.
In the red box is the logical size
In the blue box is the physical size minus DAOS.
In the green box is the physical size with DAOS included. This is the one quotas apply to when “Check File Size when extending the File” is set.
I hope you found this useful!
