Using a Round-Robin Partition

Create a new partition or change an existing partition using the round-robin strategy so that each partition contains an approximately equal number of rows.

  1. In the left pane of the Administration Console, expand ASE Servers > Schema Objects > Tables, then choose one of the following:
    • User Tables
    • Proxy Tables
  2. Click the Name field of the table, then click the drop-down arrow and select Properties.
  3. In the left pane, click Partitions.
  4. Click the drop-down arrow and select New, or choose to an existing partition from the right pane.
  5. In the Select Partition Strategy screen:
    1. Choose the partitioning strategy Round Robin.
    2. (Optionally) Specify the number of partitions.
  6. In the Partition Specification screen, specify the name of the partition and where the partition will reside.
    This partitioning strategy is random as no partitioning criteria are used. Round-robin-partitioned tables have no partition keys.
  7. (Optional) Click Summary to review your selected options.
