What are the database space requirements for the VigilEnt Policy Center?
VigilEnt Policy Center 2.x
VigilEnt Policy Center 3.x
VigilEnt Policy Center 4.0
VigilEnt Policy Center 4.1
The formula for database requirements is:
(1 kilobyte per policy * number of users ) + XML policy and/or quiz size
3 policies for 10 users, with no quizzes or HTML documents = (3 policies * 1 kilobyte per policy) * 10 users = 30 kilobytes
Quiz size varies from customer to customer. NetIQ's sample database documents range from 10 to 74 kilobytes in size each; the average document size is 31 kilobytes. Note: No additional space is required within the database for imported policy documents, since they are stored on the local VigilEnt Policy Center server.
If 2 quizzes were added to the above example, the total size would be:
[(3 policies * 1 kilobyte per policy) * 10 users] + (2 quizzes * 31 kilobytes each) = [30 kilobytes] + 62 kilobytes = 92 kilobytes
These estimates are based on average document sizes; your quiz and/or policy usage may vary.
VPC currently includes The Information Security Policies Made Easy library document, which requires approximately 4.5 megabytes of database space.
