    Why the minimum requirement of 100 Gb available disk space for Replicator Agent?

    I just upgraded to 4.8.3 and noticed that this minimum disk space requirement was enforced and prevented the service from starting. I have been using the replicator agent for close to 1 year and the directory is only using 300 Mb of disk space. I need to justify a storage allocation of > 100Gb for an application that is only using 300 Mb of disk space. What is the expected storage growth of this application?

    Thank you,
    John

    Hi John,

    We realize that this a very large disk requirement but we have it in place because of the wide range of functionality of the Replicator Agent. Our customers have the ability to create very detailed logs and combining that with the Agent’s ability to process millions of records quickly and any other options the customer enables, it can add up. So we ask that you have 100 Gb disk space because failure to create these giant logs could cause the agent to fail, which could be very hard to recover from.

    In short we have that requirement just in case, and to prevent customers from losing records.

    Thanks!
    Joseph
