To check that you could do the following:

  • Go to your control panel at https://cloud.digitalocean.com/

  • Then go to your managed database instance

  • Click on ‘Insights’ then from the dropdown choose the name of your cluster

  • There you would be able to see all kinds of different metrics including your disk usage.

Hope that this helps!

  • Hello, insights doesn’t show the database disk space usage at all. Can you please let us know if this has been moved?

    I can not find it anywhere, and I keep getting the fake warning about database reaching disk space since my DB is 25 GB and I only have 10 MB db uploaded. Support isn’t helpful at all, they just respond with the same warning I am querying about.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thank you

    • They seem to not want to answer this question… I also do not see disk usage in the insights.

      • Hi there @edwardteach and @waituk7,

        This is actually available, what you need to do is go to your Cluster, click on Insights, then from the ‘Select object’ dropdown make sure to select your Database cluster name and then scroll a bit further down, there you will see metrics like the CPU usage, Memory usage, and your Disk usage.

        Here is a screenshot of that:


        Hope that this helps!

        • Is there option to see disk usage of individual database?

          • Hello,

            I don’t believe that this is visible directly via the Control Panel, but you could use any MySQL client like TablePlus to check the size of your individual databases.

            Or you could run the following query:

                table_schema AS 'DB Name',
                ROUND(SUM(data_length + index_length) / 1024 / 1024, 1) AS 'DB Size in MB'
            GROUP BY
