I could NOT be happier with how that went.

> Last weekend during the 6.1 bug hunting session I prattled on, over on the

> file holding ~318 thousand records in an embedded hsql database.
> Thought I'd post a recap here, with an added bit from today.
> Before running the migration assistant;
> Ran SHUTDOWN COMPACT against the original hsql odb which then had a 32.8
> Meg disc image.
> - pass one started
> At the 4 hr and 30 minute mark I stopped the soffice process because I had
> an idea.
> Did the following;
> Dropped all indexes on all tables, recalling this schema is a reporting
> dataset generated from a larger transaction set so lots of indexing on a
> smaller number of tables.
> With all indexes gone and cleaned up the disc image was down to 18.5 Megs.
> Started
> - pass two
> Can't say exactly how long it took, as it was late and after seeing this
> change; during the first run the soffice process was writing data to disc
> at a steady ~500K Bi/s,
> during the second, without the indexs, the throuput went to ~1.2M Bi/s;
> I went to bed.
> In the morning and the migration complete the disc image was now 24.8 Megs
> Picked that migrated file up again today adding back all, exact, indexing
> and then jettisoned the old hsql files from the ODB.
> Final disc image, 6.4 Megs.
> BTW, the schema was advantageous in that it holds predominantly numeric
> data, all character data in varchar or char fields, no blob data at all. It
> included two text table definitions, which it dealt with properly by
> ignoring them. And a view which, unfortunately, referenced one of those -
> but the error again didn't stop the data load.
> Could be happier with the results here.
> My take away, how did I forget to check the indexing? (i'm getting
> forgetful in my golden years..;)
> Best wishes,
