Recently one of my managed DBs started alerting me to the disk usage approaching its limit. This baffled me as there wasn’t that much data in the databases. I ran a query on the database to find out the size of the tables and indexes and it totalled 35GB, most of which was in a few storage database and this value seemed accurate.
However I looked at the managed DB settings in DO and it said that it was a 60GB disk. Then I logged into the DO dashboard and the managed DB said it was at 73% disk usage.
Now it’s been a few years since I was at school but I’m fairly sure that 35/60 is not 73%.
I’m miffed as to where the rest of this usage is.
I’m more than happy to pay for more disk space, but when 25GB on a 60GB disk seems to have disappeared, I’m want to understand why before purchase more.
Can anyone offer any tips?
