Estimation of database size

Hi,

How can I estimate the database size required for a Netweaver system?

I am installing a new system with ESS and MSS.

And what is the rate that this database will normally grow?

Appreciate any reply.

Thanks,

Tzyy Ming

    Hi Tzyy,

    you should expect around 20 GB for a newly installed system. The growth rate very much depends on the scenarios you intend to use (MSS/ESS) and the number of users. Since it is almost impossible to predict the growth rate we always make sure that we provide enough space for at least 12 month under "worst case scenario" conditions - that works for us.

    You might want to check the SAP Quicksizer (hardware estimate). It gives you an idea of what are relevant factors for your scenario: http://service.sap.com/quicksizing

      The quicksizing tool, if populated correctly, is the best way to estimate DB size, i/o, etc.

      There's no way to accurately estimate what size your database will need until you know what all will be going in it and how long the data will be retained. The quicksizing tool is designed to translate your business use into DB size.

    Hi,

    check the installation document at service.sap.com/instguides

    since you are going to use ESS/MSS

    either go for ABAP+JAVA installation

    or you can install ABAP & JAVA separately on different host.
