DB size smaller after hom. copy + unicode conversion
We have carried out an homogeneous system copy from PROD system to QAS, combined with the Unicode conversion.
After the completion of the process, it turns out that the size of the QAS system is smaller than the PROD one.
We think that the reason could be related to data fragmentation in the source system. This fragmentation should not exist in the target system after the copy and conversion.
However, it would be very interesting for us to know if you have had any similar issue, or you have a different explanation.
Thanks in advance,
