The list is growing, when will there be a PG 64 bit?

The Initial Data File Size used to be 40 MB, and now it is showing 100 MB, is this the expected behavior?

Installs on top of the Nov CTP for SQL 08 R2.

Can you provide some more information about exactly what you are seeing?

In January, we started building a version of ArcSDE 10 for PostgreSQL on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 update 4.  This is a 64 bit implementation.  Our goal is to fully test and certify this as ready to ship with pre-release in March.

These are just the default values that are inserted in the data files, and log files entry for installing.  100 MB actually makes a bit more sense, I am just noting that there is a change.

Very aggressive scheduling, Robert.  Good to know.  Thanks for the prompt response. PG on Linux 64, what about on windows 64?

We have no plans to build a native 64 bit implementation of ArcSDE for PosgreSQL on Windows.  Here's a link explaining why.

If this situation changes, we'll adapt as quickly as we can.

PostgreSQL uses a multi-process architecture, not multi-threaded. In a multi-threaded database server, all client connections share the memory space, and are again limited by the total addressable memory region. With PostgreSQL, you could easily have more than 1Gb per backend (if necessary) without running out of memory, which significantly pushes away the point when you need to go to 64-bit.

Thanks Robert, I am a bit ignorant

Sorry, no, that was not the intent at all.  I just meant to let you know that there was no 64 bit version of PostgreSQL on Windows that we could use, thus we could not build a 64 bit Windows version of ArcSDE for PostgreSQL, that's all.  The other technical details provided in that thread may be interesting, but are really just extra info you probably didn't need.
