RE: Stop defragmenting and start ...

Robyn,

As far as I was concerned, it became standard practice back in version 6 or
7.  I *never* liked the pctincrease parameter - it never made any sense to
me.

But I would guess that it generally became accepted sometime around when the
paper was published.  It was a basic grass-roots-ground-swell type of deal
that the paper finally formally published, and Oracle agreed to after the
fact.

Hello,

Can someone tell me when uniform extent sizing became a recommended
practice?  The 'Stop defragmenting and Start Living' paper has a copyright
date of 1998, and I remember implementing it on some databases back in 1999,
but I was wondering if it there were earlier references to this approach.
