Understanding How TASKE Applications use Computer Disk Space

TASKE applications require disk space for application installation as well as space for storing data files. This article describes how you can estimate the amount of free disk space your installation will require.

Summary

TASKE applications require disk space in two ways. First, a static amount of space for application installation. Second, a variable amount of space for storing data files, user preferences, configuration settings, and other associated files. Continue with the sections below to gain insight into the amount of disk space required for installation and storage by your TASKE applications.

Installation Space Required by TASKE Applications

Following are approximate disk space requirements for installing the various types of TASKE applications:

TASKE ApplicationApproximate Disk Space Required
TASKE Contact Server600 MB
TASKE Cloud Server400 MB
TASKE DisplayCentral10 MB
TASKE Desktop2 MB

Storage Space Required by TASKE Applications

Several factors are involved in determining the amount of storage space required by TASKE applications. The sections below describe the amount of storage required for each application type.

Server Applications

The amount of storage space required by TASKE server applications is based on the number of telephone system resources the application is monitoring and the call volume for the site. Together, these determine the size of the data files (.pbx or .pb) and the summary files for producing reports (.tds, .tws, .tms or .stg) and Visualizer results (.zip or .tcs).

Using two sites as examples, the table below illustrates how call volume and the number of telephone system resources impact the size of the telephone system data files and summary files for a single site.

Site VariableSmall SiteMid-size Site
Number of calls per day10003500
Number of Trunks*100100
Number of Extensions*100200
Number of Agents20100
Number of Queues535
TASKE Cloud
Data Files per day50 MB500 MB
Generated summary files per day50 MB500 MB
TASKE Contact
Data Files per day4 MB10 MB
Generated summary files per day1 MB5 MB

Using the data in the above table, sites can estimate the amount of disk space required for one year of storage.

This calculation should not be taken at face value as the amount of space required. The site should factor in additional space for the growth of both resources and call volume.

If the site does not wish to dedicate this amount of space, then manual or automatic archiving (compressing) and deleting of data files will be required. For instruction on performing these tasks, view the online help on the TASKE server computer.

Client Applications

TASKE client applications such as TASKE DisplayCentral and TASKE Desktop do not require storage space beyond 1 MB. These applications store only a few default settings.
