Subject: [THIN] OT - VM sizing for testing

I have an off-topic question for the wisdom of the list.

I have been charged with performance testing some actions regarding
virtual machines.

I was wondering if those of you who are consulting or are willing to
speak up, could give me your impressions on.

What would you consider a 'small', 'medium', and 'large' sized virtual disk?


I know that many enterprises are virtualizing for many reasons, and my
history tought me to make a virtual disk as small as possible.  But
practice may be, and may have changed.  So I was curious what your
experiences have been and what the losw to high range might be on the
size of a virtual disk.

Thanks all in advance!
