Pinned topic Sizing the IADB

‏2013-07-10T20:47:09Z | ia iadb information_analyzer sizing

Does anyone have a good method for estimating the size of the IA repository(ies)?

I know from the documentation that you need to take into account a few things, but then it is silent on how to convert those "things" into an estimate:

Online Documentation

"When you plan for the size of your databases, consider these factors that affect the size of each database:

  • Number of tables to be analyzed
  • Number of columns in tables to be analyzed
  • Number of unique records within these tables
  • Number of char and varchar columns
  • Types of analysis to be done

Unless you use sampled analysis, an analysis database might be larger than the combined size of all the analyzed data sources."
