Subject RE: [firebird-support] How to estimate free space inside database file
Author Bryan Cole
Thanks for this info. Sadly, I'm unable to use the ibsurgeon tools. My database is running on a headless linux server. I need to estimate the database free space from another server-application. Thus, a linux commandline tool or library would work for me. Better would be a SQL query I can use to get this info.

Any other hints as to how to count BLOB pages?
