Calculation of disk space without the use of the Vulnerability and patch management feature

The Administration Server disk space required for the %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\KasperskyLab\adminkit folder can be estimated approximately using the formula:

(724 * C + 0.15 * E + 0.17 * A), KB

where:

  • C is the number of devices.
  • E is the number of events to store.
  • A is the total number of Active Directory objects:
    • Device accounts
    • User accounts
    • Accounts of security groups
    • Active Directory organizational units

If scanning of Active Directory is disabled, A is considered to equal zero.

Calculation of additional disk space with the use of the Vulnerability and patch management feature

  • Updates. The shared folder additionally requires at least 4 GB to store updates.
  • Installation packages. If some installation packages are stored on the Administration Server, the shared folder will require an additional amount of free disk space equal to the total size of all of the available installation packages to be installed.
  • Remote installation tasks. If remote installation tasks are present on the Administration Server, an additional amount of free disk space (in the %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\KasperskyLab\adminkit folder) equal to the total size of all installation packages to be installed will be required.
  • Patches. If Administration Server is involved in installation of patches, an additional amount of disk space will be required:
    • The patches folder should have the amount of disk space equal to the total size of all patches that have been downloaded. By default, patches are stored in the %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\KasperskyLab\adminkit\1093\.working\wusfiles folder.

      You can use the klsrvswch utility to specify a different folder for storing patches. The klsrvswch utility is located in the folder where Administration Server is installed. The default installation path: <Disk>:\Program Files (x86)\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Security Center.

      If Administration Server is used as the WSUS server, you are advised to allocate at least 100 GB to this folder.

    • The %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\KasperskyLab\adminkit folder must have an amount of disk space equal to the total size of those patches that are referenced by existing instances of update (patch) installation and vulnerability fix tasks.
