    Data Size V Application Size

    Kevin Stanfield

      Hi - perhaps a dumb question but I'll ask it anyway.


      In terms of sizing servers based on data size (& concurrency) I'd previously used the size of the data not the application size which is considerably less. As an example for a recent customer proof of concept I have raw data of approx. 750 mb (.csv files) but the loaded application size is 57mb.


      Based on what I've researched & read on the community QlikView is obviously very adept at data compression (even without QVDs) and it would seem that I should be basing the server sizing on the application size not that the data size – is that a correct assumption or is it too simplistic a view?


      Thanks in advance
