Our NimbusSLM database is getting quite large and has been the source of some pain for us.  Our performance was very poor for a while, but defragmenting the disk where the database is stored (which was very high) helped a lot with that.  Since then, we have seen the performance of the database decline somewhat, but it continues to be acceptable so far.  We are paying a lot of attention to this to make sure we do not exceed the capacity of our database.

I am curious to find out what kinds of experiences others have had with their databases.  We recently exceeded 30,000 QoS objects, and I am not sure who might be working with databases of that size or larger.  We have plans to add many more devices to NimBUS, so we expect that to grow significantly.

If anyone is willing to share some of their own experiences, that would be very helpful and much appreciated.
