Source sizing implementation for dSource(SAP HANA)

Source sizing is important to understand one important factor of the overall storage requirements for your Delphix Continuous Data Engine. As more sources are ingested and their sizes grow, additional hardware might be required to maintain a performant engine. This feature, which supports the Managed Source Data report, will help you monitor the size of each ingested source, which is calculated from the dataset’s total, uncompressed, allocated space, and then help you predict storage trends and requirements. 

This value is meant to help size your Delphix Continuous Data Engine and should not be used when reporting Usage-Based Pricing Measurements to Delphix. Follow the Delphix Pricing Guide for more information. 


  • For all datasets, the size of the dataset can be calculated using du -sb <dataset> command that provides the correct volume and apparent size of the datasets. 

  • Source sizing is implemented for below methods: 

  • For the dSource created using an external backup ingestion method 

  • For the dSource created using the staging push method 

The apparent size is displayed in the Managed Source Data report and dSource configuration, as shown below:
