Filesize for Data store on device


If in the namespace config, filesize is kept as 16G, then once aerospike is started it automatically creates file with of namespace and size equal to 16 GB despite the data in it of that size. Can we change this behavior. and how.

Similarly I would like to know that what is min file size that I can specify, currently it does not allow me to specify it less than 2MB

Thanks and Regards, Avadhut Wadikar


Hello Avadhut. You can look up the reference for the filesize config param. The Storage Engine Configuration Recipes section has more information on it.
