FEP Capacity Planning Worksheet


Greetings!

Attached to this blog post is the FEP Datawarehouse Space Capacity Planning worksheet. You can use this worksheet to help estimate the amount of disk space needed based on the following values:

  • Number of client computers in your FEP 2010 deployment
  • The number of days to retain data (the retention period)
  • The average number of Configuration Manager collections to which each client computer belongs
  • The average number of detections per client computer, per day

After you enter in your values in the yellow area, the calculated results appear in the next set of rows. Each row contains information about average record sizes, number of records per computer per day, total size of the record type in the database, and the percent of the total space used by the record item.

The final row in the spreadsheet, in green, gives you the total estimated size of the FEP Datawarehouse, given the values you supplied.

Enjoy!

    Hi Serge!

    That value is the number of all collections of which the client is a member – not just the ones that have FEP policy assgined.

    Thanks for the question – that's a good one!

    Hi,

    how about this point :

    •   The average number of detections per client computer, per day

    what does that means ?

    Hello,

    The average number of detections per client computer per day is the average number of malware you expect to detect per client computer per day.

    The average number of Configuration Manager collections to which each client computer belongs …

    May look as asking the obvious, but are these:

    – the number of any collections the client is member of?

    – the number of collections with FEP policies assigned to the client is member of?

    Thanks
