I am working on testing my migration to IDM 4.0.2 AE from 3.6.1 and I
have a few questions about the DCS driver. I already have Sentinel
6.1RD in my environment (with a migration to Sentinel 7.0.1 planned in
the near future). Is it possible to point the DCS driver to Sentinel to
send all the events instead of utilizing the IDM EAS & Reporting? I'm
concerned about database sizes and growth for EAS and I would prefer to
send them all to Sentinel and then just utilize the Sentinel Link to
forward events to EAS. What would be the best way to manage this sort
of implementation?

Also, are there any data management tools for the EAS database?
Something similar to the Sentinel Data Manager that allows you to
configure data retention, archiving, and general DB management. I
started DCS up in my dev environment and had it pointed to my dev
EAS/Reporting server and after one resynch of all users on one driver,
the DB was full. Admittedly, I don't have a significant amount of space
allocated, but this was one driver and one full resynch. My concern is
how large would my database be in a production environment with tons of
events being processed on a daily basis.

Thanks in advance for any guidance or insight.
