In IBM® i 7.1 with the latest Technology Refresh updates, the maximum size of an SQL index increased to 1.7 TB, allowing users to take advantage of Very Large Database (VLDB) capabilities. This IBM Redpaper™ publication shows you how to view your IBM i 7.1 database file sizes from both a graphical user interface using IBM i Navigator and by using a stored procedure to help you identify when you are getting close to these system limits.
