WAN accelerator digest sizing?

Veeam Logoby aeos42 » Mon Jul 17, 2017 5:51 pm

Hello,

https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95 states to allocate 5% of provisioned VM size to source WAN accelerator. https://bp.veeam.expert/resource_planni ... ation.html states to allocate 2% of "source VM disk size". Which % is correct and should provisioned or actual disk size be used?

Thanks.

I believe the best practices guide recommendation comes from Veeam B&R v9.0 times and just needs to be updated to the current (Veeam B&R v9.5) one you see in the help section.

Thanks, foggy! Then when setting up the source WAN accelerator can I set a cache size of 0gb?

Yes, cache size doesn't matter on the source WAN accelerator.

Then circling back to my second question, what's the reason that 9.5 requires digest space be allocated for provisioned space instead of just used space? There's a large amount of empty provisioned space in my environment and it'd be nice to not allocate digest space for it.

It is just a more valid estimation than the previous one, since the provisioned space might be filled with data some day and you need to get prepared to keep it's digests.
