I am running sybase 12.5.4. We have a stored procedure that will calculate the free space percentage for each segment. It does its calculation based on reserved pages. There have recently been some issues where one of the segments is off. It is showing about 10% more free space than is available.
If I do a calculation using free pages and total pages, I get the actual free space (free pages / totals pages) * 100
So what is the difference between reserved pages and free pages in Sybase ASE?
