RT and Postgresql 8?

Hi,

is there anything specific that makes using RT with PostgreSQL8 a bad
choice ?

My test-installation runs MySQL 4.0.x and does so quite well - but I’ve
got more trust in PostgreSQL from a RDBMS point of view.

cheers,
Rainer

Nothing specific, but I’d like to hear back from folks who’ve put it
through its paces. We don’t have Pg 8.0 “in the lab” yet.

I know that MySQL is much better tested.

Is there a simple way to “generate”, say, 25000 (“realistic”) tickets
via email ?
With attachments ?
I could do a installs in different GSX-server instances (under FreeBSD5)
and see what happens…

But that would still have them (the tickets) lacking any kind of
transactions…

Well, these days we test on MySQL, PostgreSQL and Oracle.

Not quite, but “make regression” will put RT through its paces, running
almost 1500 tests on all aspects of the system.

working fine here, FWIW. Not heavy, but it works out of the box.

3.4.1.

So far so good here. I put it in on a new install and haven’t had any
problems. Passed all tests before install.

I don’t push this install hard enough to know how fast it is compared
with version 7.
