SCCM 2012 - Package Storage Estimation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to get an idea in SCCM 2012 to work out how much space will be used by a packages on a Primary Site Server.

    From what I can see it would take the following.

    If I have a simple package:

    A copy of the file in D:\SMSPKGSIG\S0100006.1...
    A tar package in D:\SMSSIG$
    An index file: D:\SCCMContentLib\DataLib\S0100006.1

    However SMSPKGSIG folder it looks like there can be multiple versions. (S0100006.1,S0100006.2 etc).

    So what I am trying to find out is some guidence on how I can calculate worst case
    how much space I need to store my packages. So even if I know say that I have
    100MB of packages I wanted to know how much storage to allow on the SMS Install drive
    to store my data.

    So any recommendations on how I can cacluate all this - even as a worst case estimate?

  • I've read that you will need 2.5x (up to 3x) the space of your source files.

  • Hi,

    Thanks - I am curious do u know where you read it. I was looking and had no luck. Was there a general MS reference to it?

  • That space should be reduced in 2012 as we don't have the pck files anymore however I'd say the 3x rule is still pretty good to go by.
