Hi All,

referring to the above thread - where Jon is mentioning http://designbrewz.com/ for capacity calculation.

does this calculator takes into account Replication factors and the "Extent Store HDD" is what the user will see when configuring storage pool > container ?

thank you in advance
kind regards

The calculator takes into account RF and all other things like metadata and oplog

Usable capacity is "Effective Capacity" on the top right of the screen. That should match with the container usable capacity

Also, keep in mind that the calculator is a "quick calculator", and doesn't factor in the additional storage made available by things like compression and deduplication, which is of course a bit subjective based on data set.
