How to assign space for each baseline in RTC SCM?

Si Ning Xu (91115) | asked Feb 20 '14, 9:37 p.m.

Whether each creates a baseline, will be allocated a portion of memory for this baseline?

For example:

create baseline-01 for a component, after some changes, create baseline-02, so the server will provide two space for this two baseline, is it?

Yes, the server will allocate space for each baseline, but the space is minimal, because a baseline is mostly just a pointer to an existing change-history record.  For some configurations, a "configuration map" is also created to make pathname lookup fast (I can never remember exactly when such a map is created :-), but a baseline will never contain a copy of file content (that is always by reference).
