SQL Server Requirements?

Hi, I see in documentation for BFI, SQL Server Requirements:

“You can use the same database server as the one on which the IBM BigFix is installed, or a separate database server, depending on the size of your deployment and available hardware resources.”

Is there an estimated number of rows per computer or table showing if you have X # computers, you should plan for X amount of DB space?


@sysadmin You can use your existing DB (Bigfix Server DB) but Kindly install an IBM Bigfix Inventory application on different machine because if we install it on same machine utilization go high, So install on different machine and point your Inventory DB into existing Bigfix server DB.

Note: For our environment we have 17000 endpoints.
