We are just about to upgrade a prod system from 10.2 to 10.3 and a key question is about the convers
The database is 16GB and has anyone experience of how long that will take to get converted ?
A good rule of thumb is ~1 hour per GB.
While normally it won't take that long, but in preparation (preparing maintenance time, tickets, etc) this is a good piece to follow.
I generally suggest starting it the afternoon before, let it go at night, and by morning it should be good in most instances. (outside of REALLY large databases)
I hope this helps.
thanks Matt, so would you start the conversion before starting the upgrade as the two are independent ?
Sorry I didn't see this update.
The conversion utility is not available until 10.3, so you will have to do it after the upgrade.
You also don't HAVE to convert right away either. It will still work as MyISAM.
Thanks Matthew, much appreciated !!
