I only mirrored the SLE 12 SP3 repos, and it has consumed more then 12 GB yet. is it not too much ? obviously it will consume more till SLES for SAP SP 3 remains active(does not reach its EOL)

Also what would be the retention period of patch downloaded ? what if all of my servers upgraded to SP 4, then I have to delete the SP 3 mirrors manually or I can set the retention for the repos ?
Hi
I would allow at least 20~25GB per product, just in case you need to mirror debug repositories, in any case would recommend using lvm, then can add space as required.

I use SuMA here and currently consume 40GB of 500GB with SLED 15, SLES 15 x86_64 and aarch64...
