Whereas applications that require recording of System and application event data into the ENFDB, it is necessary to know how many events are created on your system. Knowing how many events are captured over a period of time will help you determine how large the ENF database should be allocated to avoid space issues. This process should only take into account events that are set to *RECORD*.
300,000 + 50% = 450,000. Allow for increase in processing at year / quarter end and allow for workspace. 450,000 * #Days = ????????. If RETPD is set to 1 day, then set #Days to 2 as it will be in the 2cnd 48hrs that events from the 1st 24hrs will reach RETPD(1). Similarly if RETPD is set to 2 days, then set #Days to 3 and so on. 450,000 * 2 = 900,000. We'll use 2 here since RETPD(1). 900,000 / 3500 = 257 Approximately 3500 events records per cylinder. 257 + 20 = 277 Allow extra space for DCM modules, and round up to nearest 10.
