I used to have trouble with my overview running out of space until
I increased the diskspace allocated to the overview so that it was
between 15 and 20% of the diskspace allocated for articles.
I chose to use the higher percentage so that I could have a pretty-much
maintenance-free server. With this percentage the news server
has been holding at about 15% for overview usage. Here are the
results of inndf on my server:
> inndf -o
15% overview space used
> inndf -n
8871987 overview records stored
