The time needed to run the archiving program depends on the number of records that are archived and the system load and performance.
To estimate the amount of memory needed to archive summary and line-item records, use the following guidelines:
One summary record requires approximately 1,000 bytes
One actual line-item record requires approximately 300 bytes
One plan line-item record requires approximately 1,000 bytes
The memory space needed for archiving depends on the size of the original data records.
