The amount of hard disk space and memory required for the IBM Tivoli Compliance Insight Manager is based on the amount of daily log data that is collected for the platforms and applications you plan to monitor. The amount of data that is to be kept in the log repository determines the required hard disk space. To determine this you can use the "Capacity Planning for Tivoli Compliance Insight Manager V8.5" document

The repository size can be approximately calculated using the following formula:

1.5 * (total GB of daily logs / 10 compression factor) * number of days to keep in repository + 25 GB for program files, temp files, databases, with a minimum of 200 GB.

The disk size for the Enterprise Server should be enlarged depending on the number of Standard Servers it manages. (For each Standard Server the Enterprise Server builds a depot index that can be as large as the depot size of the Standard Server itself.) For example, the extra disk size needed for the Enterprise Server can be calculated using the following formula:

depot size of Standard Server 1 + depot size of Standard Server 2 + ....

Before installation, the hardware must have a minimum of 2.5 GB of disk space available.
