Microsoft SQL Server databases have strict size limits, which may inhibit the amount of data that a Solarwinds application can store in them. These limits are as follows:

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express edition has a database size limit to 4GB
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express edition has a database size limit to 4GB
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express edition has a database size limit to 10GB
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express edition has a database size limit to 10GB
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express edition has a database size limit to 10GB

Orion will alert you when you approach these limits.
