Redhat, too. The DB is the maxsize size. That's why I asked.
Not sure what you are doing then. This is not the behavior I see on RedHat:
[zimbra@ldap01-zcs db]$ ls -l
-rw------- 1 zimbra zimbra 85899345920 Nov 13 17:23 data.mdb
-rw------- 1 zimbra zimbra 8192 Nov 13 17:23 lock.mdb
[zimbra@ldap01-zcs db]$ du -c -h data.mdb
[zimbra@ldap01-zcs db]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.2 (Santiago)
I.e., the reported file size vs the actual file size differ. So my DB is
245MB in size, not 80GB.
