DB Size means including free space or excluding free space?

Actually above information need to be cleared that TDMS license should be based on Database Size including the space which is still in free space zone, not used by any tables/objects?

It shouldnt be the case as I may allocate additional storage to the database but still it in free space zone. For example My total DB size is 1000 GB out of this 400GB is still free. So license should be based on 600GB(1000-600). Any one can clear the issue please?

    • You will not find any reference document that says what exactly is database size. It is obvious that an SAP system's database size is the actual occupied size not the total size where the memory is unoccupied. You may check the same in DB02 and EWA report as well.


      How much does SAP TDMS cost?
      The price depends on the database size of the production system and is charged per productive
      installation (regardless of the number of related non-production installations). In addition, the
      standard costs for database licenses and support apply.
      In the case of SAP TDMS, we have defined database size categories as well as a fixed standard
      price for each category. The following categories are available:
       0 to 299 GB
       300 to 599 GB
       600 to 899 GB
       900 to 1199GB
       1200 + n times 300 GB
