SQL Kidu (9/30/2012)
I have a scenario where I need to import data from a server to another one. The data transfer is expected at 700 XML files ( of maximum size 5kb each ) per hour. The data from xml file will be read by a python program which inturn calls a stored proc which transfers the file content to table. after that, the processed files will be moved to processed folder from the landing zone. I am asked to estimate the capacity of server required. Could anyone help please ?
processor, RAM, Disk memory, etc.
You're missing a couple of key pieces of information here.
1. What is your backup plan? How long must a full backup be available on disk and how often will you stream the backups to tape? This question must be answered for both the SQL Server database and the XML files at the disk level.
2. How long do you need to keep the original XML files?
3. How long do you need to keep the XML data in a table before you can begin removal of the data through an archive system?
4. Will you be shredding the XML and storing the individual shredded elements anywhere else in the database?
