Regarding you query related to event queue pairtool -qs will provide your physical queue size. With respect to backup, would request you to estimate archive file size growth in 6 month and estimate you backup drive space. Consider Full backup + incremental for next 6 month also add some space for configuration files.

I typically use some rules-of-thumb for these:
- Backup needs to accomodate your backup size. If data flows in in-sequence only, then your backup schedule (e.g. daily) and your archive rate (e.g.1 archive / day) would dictate your need for backup space (e.g. 1 archive file only). However, i would typically make an assumption for e.g. somewhere between 1 to 6 months of data to be included in a backup at most.
- Any significant queue size is only required when the Archive subsystem can't write quickly enough. So that should agian be not much more than e.g. 1 day of data max
Hope this helps!
