29 March,2013 by Tom Collins

Question : A server is short on disk space . I created a list of the largest file, and the largest is C000000.LRG. What is a LRG file and how can I make it smaller?

 Answer:  The LRG file  is large tablespace container. To decrease the size of file :  delete the data in the table , commit an offline REORG  using the LONGLOBDATA option.

 An Inplace REORG will not work.
