Initial Size of the Repository

When a repository is created in console for the first time, is there any preset space (Eg: 50 MB) in the database which gets assigned to the repository? Or does the repository size grows dynamically as and when we create the tables with in that repository?

    Hi,

    as to my knowledge, MDM does not assign any space to a new repository in the database. It just grows with objects in the repository.

    If that is a requirement, I guess you would have to reserve the space in your database manager tool. But I'm not a DBA.

    Best regards

    Hi,

    Whenever a new repository is created it has some tables and fields inbuilt and hence it occupies some storage in database server but there wont be any preset space reserved for the repository. For DBMS repository is nothing but a simple database consisting of tables and fields.

    Create a repository and open the SQL Server you can see the two databases created for one repository with names <repositoryname>_m000 and <repositoryname>_z000. Right click on <repositoryname>_m000 and select properties, select the tab Data Files, there you will get the File Properties indicating whether to grow the file dynamically or by some factor in MBs. You can also restrict the growth of the repository size.

    Kindly update us....
