How RTC source control consumes the files memory


Ayan Khan (11) | asked Aug 17 '18, 12:48 a.m.
Hello Team,

I just want to know how RTC consumes the source control files memory after the baselines  or snapshot.
For example today i have 50MB size file in a component and that is my baseline1.After a week my file size is increased to 70MB is my baseline2.
How does RTC manages the memory ?
Does is occupies 120MB or 70MB ?
Can somebody help me out with a clarification.

By "memory", do you mean database space on the server?   And are you talking about the database space used by the version of the file, or about the cumulative space for all versions of the file, or about the space for the baseline itself?

RTC only stores the deltas (differences) between the source files. The deltas are compressed as well. So neither of your numbers above really add up.

Thank you ralph for quick response.
Is there any way to find out the growth of the component.
