The disk size you need depends on the number of Traces you want to work on simultaneously.
- One recording of a full system (Scenario) will generate a few hundreds of megabytes depending on the system you are recording and how long you record.
Example: 30 seconds of a regular Microsoft Windows 10 system will be around 300MB.
- Generating the Trace for this Scenario is required before analyzing it. The size of a Trace will be a few hundreds of gigabytes (still depending on the recording).
Example: A Trace of 250GB is likely for the same 30 seconds recording of a regular Microsoft Windows 10 system.
Accordingly, we suggest a minimum of 2TB SSD disks (see Requirements).
Management of disk space:
- The Scenarios are the only files you need to keep. You can always regenerate (Replay) the Traces from them.
- REVEN includes import/export mechanisms to help you manage effectively your disk space and save the Scenario files on other disks.
