Estimation of database size
How can I estimate the database size required for a Netweaver system?
I am installing a new system with ESS and MSS.
And what is the rate that this database will normally grow?
Appreciate any reply.
you should expect around 20 GB for a newly installed system. The growth rate very much depends on the scenarios you intend to use (MSS/ESS) and the number of users. Since it is almost impossible to predict the growth rate we always make sure that we provide enough space for at least 12 month under "worst case scenario" conditions - that works for us.
You might want to check the SAP Quicksizer (hardware estimate). It gives you an idea of what are relevant factors for your scenario: http://service.sap.com/quicksizing
