File Statistics

File Statistics

The File Statistics utility displays statistics for all open files that belong to any of the databases managed by the selected Zim Server.

 

Each Zim file is displayed in a single row in the File Statistics grid, whose column headers are described in the table below:

Use Indicates whether the file is IN USE or NOT IN USE

Writes The number of times this file has been written to since the selected Zim Server session was initiated
Read Locks The number of times this file has had a read lock since the selected Zim Server session was initiated.
(A read lock happens when a 1kb page within the file is locked for reading)
