Size of netflow database

I have no idea how much room to ask for on our SQL server for the netflow product. We will order the 25-int version and there are about 5000 nodes in the County generating flows. Any ideas? -Debbi

One of the other threads:

recommended 15GB+ for 15 netflow nodes. It will really depend on the number of interfaces reporting flows as well.
I had 10 flows running on my Inet routers and my DB size grew to 50GB (10x) from around 5 after a few days. It was then relatively slow growing because of the stats compressing.
