The source sizing feature aligns the data source experience with Delphix database standards that will improve your ingestion reporting experience on the per TB pricing model. This feature enables you to calculate the dataset size based on the total allocated space on the mount point provided by the Delphix Engine for the dataset.
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 external backup ingestion method
For the dSource created using staging push method
