This chapter holds some general rules about how much disk space a nevisMeta database (data directory) will use. Note that the effective size will strongly depend on the specific data characteristics and use cases.
NEVIS recommends allocating at least 500 MB of disk space to the nevisMeta database. When defining the DB size, the following should be considered: the number of setups to be administrated in nevisMeta in the coming years, and how long historical data should be kept in the nevisMeta database.
The amount of historical data will increase depending on the number of entity operations (inserts, updates, deletes). Batch jobs may be used to periodically remove old history data.
