AlienVault USM Appliance Database Size

Some users have reported that their own calculations, using the Linux du command, do not match the database size reported by the USM Appliance web UI, however, the value that the web UI displays is correct. The reason for the discrepancy is that most direct calculations that users perform do not take in account the database space required for metadata storage, which the USM Appliance correctly includes in its calculation.
