BMC provides sizing tools that you can use to determine the initial size needed for your reports data warehouse. These sizing tools also determine the size needed for the archived data.
Sizing tools for your database type help you to systematically determine the approximate size requirements for your reports data warehouse before you begin the product installation. These tools are in the form of scripts and spreadsheets and vary based on your scenario.
The sizing tools (spreadsheets and scripts) determine the database size by projecting the amount of data that you will have a specified number of days into the future. This enables you to determine your database size requirements for any required time period.
The sizing worksheets and scripts are included in the bdssa86<servicepackVersion>external-files.zip file. To download the zip file, click the BMC Decision Support - Server Automation 8.6.00 servicepackVersion External Files link on the Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) site. It is included with the
