Is there a tool/application to calculate space requirement for a database in SQL Server? I know sp_spaceused can be used, but it calculates the actual space being taken up at that moment. What I was looking for is a tool that connects to the database and the user can interactively provide input like average number of rows and get the space requirement. This can be used for planning for future.
The tool should be able to connect to a SQL Server instance/database,
Get data size for one row for each table
User should be able to put estimated row counts for all the tables
The tool should be able to estimate the size requirement
With some more input like transactions per day etc, we can estimate the size of the log etc.
