UserLock Frequently Asked Questions

What is the disk space consumed by the UserLock database?

To calculate the disk space needed for the UserLock database, you have to consider the disk space consumed to keep the user session history: A logon event consumes 0.5 KB of disk space. Typically a user generates at least 4 connection events during a day (a logon, a lock, an unlock and a logoff) so you can calculate the disk space consumed per year as following.

Example for 100 users:
100 X 4 X 0.5 KB = 200 KB/day = 4 MB/Month (20 business days) = 50 MB/Year

You can simply use this formula to estimate the disk space consumed by the database according to the number of users and the time period your history have to cover.
