Question:

In order to prepare the database server I’d like to know the size (in GB) of the data volume and the archive volume needed for JobScheduler.

Answer:

The most important single factor here is theJobScheduler's log files. In turn, their size will depend on the following:

  1. The jobs themselves - How much information do they log?
  2. Your scheduling - How often will each job run?
  3. Your JobScheduler configuration - what log levels are set?
  4. Your housekeeping - How long do you want to keep your log files on your server?

You can do a quick sum once you have a basic idea of the numbers and then you can add on safety factors. To help you get a quick 'order of magnitude' idea of how much space you could require, a 'CheckDaysSchedule' job, one of the standard JITL Jobs JobScheduler uses to check what it has to do, typically has a log file size around 10KB.

Typical database volume sizes start at around 10 - 15 GB.

We recommend that you use our JITL Jobs by Topic: Housekeeping to regularly maintain the log files. Once these jobs have been put into place and a run for a cycle the database volume size will remain more or less constant until new jobs or job runs are configured.
