MARS - planning for NFS archives, how to determine events/second
I'm planning to setup an NFS server to send the MARS archives to. I have a MARS 100e and I need to keep the archives for up to one year, so I plan on keeping the archives on the NFS server for at least two or three months before backing them up to tape. I'm having a difficult time trying to figure out how much disk space I will need on my NFS server to accomplish this.
I read that "when planning for space requirements, use the following guidance: Estimate 6 GB of storage space for one year's worth of data, received at a sustained 10 events/second. This estimate assumes an average of 200 Bytes/event and a compression factor of 10, both realistic mean values." from the MARS 4.2.x Install and Setup Guide, but I'm having trouble figuring out what my average events/sec are currently so that I will know how much disk space I will need on the NFS server.
I noticed that there's a /pnarchive mount point on the controller that has 29G allocated to it, so I was wondering if that is a good guideline for determining the drivespace needed for my NFS server. Is that a good determination?
If anyone has any advice or tips regarding this, I would be GREATLY appreciative if they would share them.
