This article describes expected behavior on a Neverfail Heartbeat server pair when calculating the expected work load to be performed on a file system.

More information

Neverfail Heartbeat analyzes the data to be replicated prior to replication. Every file and folder needs to be analyzed and the info obtained is stored locally in a temporary file.

Neverfail Heartbeat installation prerequisites state that a system must have at least 1 GB of free space on the install partition. This is normally sufficient for a typical Neverfail Heartbeat installation.

If the environment Neverfail Heartbeat has been installed to have a file system with a large number of files and folders, the generated temporary file can reach a large size and in some cases could grow larger than 1 GB. Typically a folder path that exceeds 200 characters would fall into this category. In this case Neverfail recommends having more than 1 GB of free space on the partition Neverfail Heartbeat has been installed.
