Aestiva Logistics

Footprint

At A Glance

The footprint of Aestiva Logistics system software (the hard-disk space used) consists of the disk space used for the following: the Array engine, application files, system cache files (files used during program execution), and logistics system records.

Aestiva's binary engine plus application files take up about 20 Megabytes. The amount of space occupied by Aestiva's system caching files depends on user activity, which depends on the number of forms in the system. Forms are typically under 100K each. Remember to take the sum of all of the Purchase Requests, Purchase Orders, RFQs, and other forms you may have specified for your system.

In general, hard disk space is related to the number and size of the forms stored. A chart showing recommended hard-disk space availability is shown below. Hard disk space usage will vary.

Space for Attached Files

If you will be attaching files to forms, then allow space for the attachments. When attachments are used, they can demand more space than the application. Plan accordingly.
