Disk space    

IT Data Analytics

For installation

20 GB for installing IT Data Analytics in a single-server deployment. This value includes the amount of space required for some IT Data Analytics application log files that are expected to grow over time. Additionally, this value includes 15 GB required for ensuring data guarantee for the Collection Station component.

Note: If you are operating in a multiple-server deployment, you require 15 GB disk space for every new Collection Station added in your environment.

For indexing data

Example: Disk space required for indexing 20 GB data per day with a default retention period of 7 days is approximately 190 GB. This value includes the amount of disk space required for installing the product.
