Large GeoDatabase Performance Optimization

Question asked by Virtuvian on Sep 8, 2014

I am working with ArcGIS 9.3.1 SP1, I am concerned with the overall performance and the health of the GeoDatabase. I will try to describe the structure followed with the questions -


1. The version of the GDB is 9.3.1 SP1 and RDBMS is SQL SERVER 2008.

2.The size of the GDB is around 150 GB with 2500 versions. Here, about 10 versions are edited using ArcMap (these versions are created -> reconciled -> posted and then deleted)., the remaining versions (around 2490) are used with various map service or feature service and are not deleted.

3. The storage type is ESRI Binary.

4. Database is frequently compressed (the end_state_count is ~ 3200), spatial index is also frequently re-calculated.

5. ArcFM and Geometric Netw@ork are involved.


I need any suggestions that can help improve the performance.

I have already started a direct connection with the database and upgrading to SP2 and applying QIP (9.3.1) is in the pipeline.

In order to suggest upgrading to version 10 or above and/or deleting versions, I will need some concrete justification.


I understand that this version is expired and therefore will not have any ESRI Technical Support, which is why I am trying my luck here.


Thanks in Advance,
