A while ago, I wrote a blog post with a sizing tool that covered sizing the XenApp/XenDesktop 7.5 and 7.6 databases. Last month, I got some feedback that said that there was an issue with the 7.6 monitoring database sizing, specifically that the Tasklog table was estimating too low.
I dug into it, and found an index wasn’t being allowed for, and a few more tasks are run every minute, hour and day, so I’ve fixed the xml file and built a new version of the tool.
You can download the updated tool from:
It’ll either upgrade the previous version or do a fresh install.
Note that the msi file has grown slightly as it’s built with a newer version of the wix toolset, which seems to produce slightly bigger .msi files. The only actual change (other than version numbers) was to the xml file.
Fixed broken sharefile link.
Also the tool is available in the Supportability Pack.
