The event log database can be stored with the Intellect configuration database or without it.

Disk space required for event log database storing is counted by formula:

Required disk space, Gb = N (pcs) * K (events/hour) * T (days) * 24 (h/day) * 1.2 (Kb) / 1024(Kb/Gb)

where N – number of objects generated events.

K – average number of events per hour from one object. It is defined experimentally from real conditions. For example, to define the average number of events per hour for camera it is required to know how many times per hour motion appears in the camera field of view. Estimation from above: one event once per five seconds, on more frequently triggering detection  haven’t got enough time to disarm and events won’t be record to the database.

T – the depth of events archive in days, specified at the system configuration.

1.2 – space required for storing one event in kilobytes.

Example. There are 250 objects, each of them generates one event per 5 seconds (i.e. 720 events per hour) with the archive depth of 20 days.

Required disk space, Gb = 250 (pcs) * 720 (events/hour) * 20 (days) * 24 (h/day) * 1.2 (Kb) / 1024(Kb/Gb) = 98.9 Gb ~ 100Gb
