Scaling and configuring the xDB Reporting database

Abstract

Recommendations for scaling and configuring the Sitecore xDB Reporting database.

The xDB Reporting database is likely to experience high write volume because it is constantly being written to by the processing role(s). Standard recommendations include:

  • Create a dedicated server for the xDB Reporting database.

  • Position the processing role(s) and the xDB Reporting database physically close or in the same subregion in Azure if possible.

  • Configure the batch aggregation options.
