Calculating File Storage Space

Approximate the file storage space used by the FairCom Server with the following equation:

Storage requirement in bytes =

server size +

communication libraries (if applicable) +

utility program size(s) +

transaction log files +

data files +

index files

The transaction log files initially increase in size as adds, deletes and updates are performed on the FairCom Server controlled files. The FairCom Server configuration keyword LOG_SPACE, which defaults to 10MB, indicates the amount of disk space allocated to store active transaction logs. Generally, the active transaction log files will not exceed the LOG_SPACE value. If transaction processing is used, it is not recommended to decrease the LOG_SPACE keyword.
