I’m facing the same challenge as well. Database gets maxxed out with little to no writes

Hi @eatingceruleaneel,

Is it possible that you are writing data to your Postgresql from your application? There isn’t anything else that I can think of to be honest.

If this continuous, however, I’ll recommend contacting DigitalOcean’s Support, they can provide you with more information as they would have access to your instance.
