Good morning,

I have an application that is around 10 gigabytes that I would like to package with rpm, it is mostly java EAR files and an application server.
Everything must be self-contained and run on each server it is installed on, however I have a problem with one part: the database.

The database is about 300 gigabytes in size, and so I am concerned about simply making an rpm out of it.
RPM will make a copy of that 300G as part of an update - the filesystem needs to have enough room.  RPM checks that - hopefully with 64-bit arithmetic. 

Is RPM subject to ULIMIT?  Does it handle it gracefully if so?

I would go ahead and make an RPM initially - just to test rpm with large files.  Would the rpm work on a 32-bit system?  Does it give a graceful error if not?

If the 300G rpm turns out to be impractical, you could make an RPM with a "data update" application that downloads and installs the data, verifying with sha256.
