AVAMAR f_cache and p_cache Formulas

Formulas to help determine the correct size of your f_cache and p_cache for AVAMAR backups.

f_cache = N * 40MB

N = Millions of Files

So for 3 million files:

f_cache = 3 * 40MB

f_cache = 120MB

p_cache = DB Size in GB/Average Chunk * 20MB

Average Chunk Sizes:

Exchange DB: 16

Microsoft SQL DB: 24

For a 100GB Microsoft SQL DB:

p_cache = 20/24 * 20MB

p_cache = 83.3MB
