  • Hi Martin,

    According to the sizing report (version 1.8 is the most recent), the second column refers to the data, (dynamic) runtime objects, and services. The third column excludes non-active data (hence non-act).

    Also, just to point out: you created a document here, which isn't the best format for a discussion. In future, you could create a discussion instead.

    I hope this helps,
