  • The answer depends on several things

    1) How much data does each user take up in AD (which depends on which attributes are populated and how big the data is in each)? Suppose 4k

    2) Which of those attributes are you synching? How often will those attributes change? Suppose 1k worth of changes per user per week

    3) How often do you plan to run Imports and exports from and to these directories? Suppose twice a day

    Vague answer: not a lot.

    Specific answer for this scenario would be about 1KB per user per week plus some overhead during those times you export and import.

    Your answer will of course depend.
