The IBM Cognos 8 BI Content Manager Size Tool (CMSize) queries objects from the content store and returns information on the count and size of the objects.
The tool provides a quick and easy way to get the size, count and search path of objects in content store. It allows you to find out why your content store is growing and identify objects which can be possibly deleted.
The tool also helps to identify “Retention Rules” that are set to a certain value. A value of “0” indicates the retention rule is set to unlimited, so there may be a large number of history or output objects in the content store database.
Simply download the file IBMCognosBI_CMSize.zip from this page, unzip the contents and double click the file IBMCognosBI_CMSize.exe.
The controls could not be easier. To log on to an IBM Cognos namespace, click the Log On icon. To log off of a current session, click the Log Off icon. To test the Content Manager connection, click the Test icon.Prerequisites
