Calculating the amount of memory to reserve for Log File data

How do I calculate the amount of memory that I should reserve for Log File data?

The size of the reserve is controlled by the following factors:

  • Amount of NVRAM installed,
  • The number of channels sampled,
  • The frequency of data sampling,
  • The number of hours between log file transfers.

The utility CatalystMemoryAllocationTool.xls (included on the Catalyst CD) is designed to help navigate you through the calculation process.
