So in my eternal quest for DR goodness these are my initial stats so far.
I have been testing our four most heavy hit servers. (These have not been really optimized for replication, need to figure out how to lower the changed bits)
For the last 11 hours
Kronos SQL DB server 9930 MB
Exchange 2003 19026 MB
File Server 12398 MB
ERP SQL DB server 6210 MB
Total: 47,564 MB
Please continue to post updates on this topic. I’ll be interested to see what sort of patterns develop for you.
One of the key metrics in making replication decisions is obviously rate of change in a volume’s data. How does one record the rate of change for a given volume?
