Specifies the number of records per segment.

Syntax

-b [SEGSIZE]
--segment-size=[SEGSIZE]

Description

Segments stored on the server will be [SEGSIZE] records each. If the user appends to an existing table, SEGSIZE is ignored for existing segments. If the user also uses -j, --segby or -J, --sortseg (even when appending), [SEGSIZE] is a suggestion for new segment sizes. Segments may be smaller or larger. The default segment size is 8388608.
