How big is too big or a catalog file?

Recommended Posts


I have a catalog sets that are upwards of close to 5gigs. Is there any danger in that? I have three quite large backup sets that are basically switched back and forth all week long so that there are always three sets of data. But I haven't been paying attention to the size of the catalog files until now. Is there any danger in letting them get this big? I should probably make them smaller simply to make searching for retrieval a lot faster, but then when I make a new set it will burn through about 5TB o the first backup.

Are there any common practices that are smart in this situation?
