Progress 9 Database Running Very Slow

Posted on 2006-06-29
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
I have a progress database that is running extremly slow on a UNIX box.  Is their a compact and repair feature for Progress?  How can I re-index the database.  And other ideas on how to speed the DB up.  It is taking 15 to 20 min. to return a query that used to take 2 min.  Any help would be great.

Thank you,

I have my progress 9.1d database "tuned" once a year by Dan Foreman.

I believe he is still contracted out of bravepoint down in Georgia.
If you've never had a progress tuning, I would highly recommend at least calling and asking his professional opinion on what to do.

I didn't see the bill last year, but I'm pretty sure it's only a few thousand dollars.. give or take :)

Here's a little better explanation about what they do:

Thank you for the info.  I will follow up with them.  Have you ever worked with Cedar Open Accounts by any chance?

No I haven't. I just got into the progress database stuff about 2 years ago and did some training down at bravepoint and that's how I learned about the tuning :)
