Exceptions database sizing

The exceptions database is used by the Data Quality Exception Console.

The Exceptions stage runs on the engine to produce exception descriptors that are stored in the exceptions database as a set of related rows and tables. Each job run that generates an exception adds a record to the descriptor table and creates a new table to hold the exception details for that run. The database will grow as jobs are run. The database content also shrinks when exceptions are deleted. The exceptions database can be managed using the ESDBAdmin tool. In general, the size requirements are similar to that of the metadata repository.
