Database Size Considerations

A newly installed Windward System Five database starts at 200 MB. As time passes data and transactions entered will grow this database.

Add the database size and recommend the same size of level 1 RAM. ie: A 30G database should have 30G of RAM available to the operating system.

Other things to consider that affect database growth

  • Number of items?
  • Number of invoices daily?
  • Number of items on invoice?
  • Are pictures or documents being added or attached to database? (Importing a 3 megabyte image into the database will increase the database size by 3 megabytes)
