Recommended Free Space on VMware Datastore
Posted on 2010-11-24
I've got a quick question. I've not been able to find any information that deals directly with this topic.
How much space is recommended on a datastore for things such as snapshots, swap file, etc?
We have a 1024GB total capacity. 831GB is provisioned, and 193GB is free. We are at the warning threshold on free space and I wondered what is really needed to be kept free.
Obviously snapshots are variable, but we don't create them and leave them for extended periods of time, so that growth shouldn't get out of control.
Thanks in advance for any input!
