How much is the increase of disk space and recource when "Enabling Versioning" in ALM?

Jump to solution

I have ALM 11.52 sp2 and will in the new future upgrade to 12.20. In either of the versions, I would like to know what is increase in disk space and resources by "Enabling Versioning". Knowing this will help me to plan disk space, memory, proccesing power. Thanks.

VC adds some overhead to ALM and will consume disk space at both the database and the repository.

The smart repository can mitigate some of the space consumption on the file system.

We don't have any consumption guidelines because there are too many variables.

The number of automated scripts in the project and the number of users accessing the project, the frequency level at which scripts are checked out and altered, etc.

Best suggestion is to take a baseline measurement of the project before enabling VC.

Then taking measurements at regular intervals and measuring against the baseline measurement and evaluate the delta.
