Question
What is the SQL database size estimation for Altiris Recovery Solution?

Answer

Applies to Recovery Solution 5.x and Recovery Solution 6.x

It is estimated that the Recovery Solution SQL database may take 4-5% of the amount of data that is store (Server Space Used) by Recovery Solution. For example if there is 1 TB of storage being used (100-1000 backed up clients) AeXCRDatabase database can be 50 GB in size. Although there is no exact formula to estimate the database size as it depends on the number of clients, amount of data, number of backed up files, retention policy and for how long the server is in use.

Make sure that there enough reserve space for SQL TempDB database.
