    ePO 4.5 SQL capacity planning

      Hello there. We are planning our SQL database for ePO 4.5 to manage around 20K clients. Do we have any white paper or any other technical mcafee document about SQL disk sizing per number of managed clients? Let me know. Thanks.

          Just a note that I moved this thread to the ePO community. The URL to the discussion did NOT change.

            I checked around and was not able to find this same document for the ePO 4.5 server. Please see page 16 and see if this helps.

             

            thanks

              Orkgandalf,

               

              I'm assuming you will be using your own SQL database since you will be managing 20k clients, correct?  SQL 2005??

               

              If so, you can browse to the McAfee KnowledgeBase and review the ePO 4.0 Hardware Sizing Guide. There is not one out for ePO 4.5 as of yet (in the works) but essentially the data in the 4.0 document can be used as guide for database sizing specs.

               

              Also, I would suggest that you review KB66616 in the KnowledgeBase for recommendations on backing up or disaster recovery your database for ePO 4.5.

               

              Here is where you can get ePO 4.0 Hardware Sizing Guide from:

               

              Go to the McAfee ServicePortal and click Product Documentation. Drill down into ePO 4.0 and click on the ePO 4.0 Hardware Sizing Guide.

               

              Please let us know if this helps or not!

                As far as I remember you need about 135 KB per managed client and about 2 KB per event.

                So it depends how much events you want to keep and how long.

                 

                Cheers Tom
