Sterling File Gateway/Sterling Integrator database is subjected to huge DML operations resulting in fragmentation. The fragmentation in the system result in performance degradation and sometimes outages if left unmonitored leading to sever business impact. Ideal solution for fragmentation is table and index partitioning. But, we got to know that SFG/SI doesnt fully support table/index partitioning. Any partition related changes must be dropped before performing an upgrade/patches. This is really pain point as partitioning is ideally one time activity as it requires long downtime/effort. Request you to add support for table and index partitioning in SFG/SI so that it can persist accross application lifecycle along with resolving our issue.
