Storage Capacity Planning

P: n/a

Hi,

I am suppose to do some storage capacity planning for my servers. I am
quite new into this area, is there anyone out there who can give me some
guide for a kick-start or is there any resource out there I can refer to
for a clearer picture?

I won't be using any 3rd party s/w in this case.

Thanks in advance for any input.

Thanks and Rgds
Eugene

I came accross this great manual from IBM about sizing of databases on
AIX systems: http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redbooks/pdfs/sg245511.pdf

I will be doing the storage planning for some oracle databases running
on unix servers.

Currently my approach :

I am running a daily job to capture the objects size from the
dba_segments and summing them up.

Let's say if I take a sample of 2 weeks and based on the
transaction rate and come up with a estimated formula, will this
projection be accurate?

Hope to hear from people who had performed storage projection before
about your expertise.

Thanks and Rgds
