QVD Size

HI,

What's the biggest size of QVD you are using ? Is there any limitation on the size of the QVD for the most efficient performance?

Thanks,

Sonam

Hi

Our biggest QVD is 1.6Gb.

For maximum efficiency have you looked into incremental loading?

Let me know if I can be of any help with that

Mine is 1.8 GB, the performance is okay.  But we use Dollar General hardware, so I think it all performs pretty well in my opinion.

It depends on a lot of factors, BUT the performance is improved if you load multiple smaller qvd's instead of a big one.
