Question

Where to see information about my managed Mysql DB size etc.

I got a managed database (Mysql). At the moment I use the first package 1CPU, 10GB of space etc. Last few days I am getting a system notification like

*Your mysql service, db-mysql-------, is running low on disk. If your service runs out of disk space, writes will be denied and other functionality could be rendered unavailable. Either delete unnecessary data or upgrade to a larger plan to avoid service outage.

Where can I see the size of my db, just got one. Any other options to avoid upgrading to a more expensive package?

Thanks, G

Hi KDSys,

I know this dashboard but there is only latency and throughput statistics there. Nothing about hard disk or other data.

Thanks, Giorgos

I had this same question which lead me to this discussion. I too kept going to the insights page and only seeing Throughput and Latency graphs. It wasn’t obvious at first, but I eventually figured it out so putting it here in case original poster still needs help or others stumble on this thread.

There is a menu called “Select Object” just above the Throughput graph, that has a database selected. Use this menu to go up the hierarchy and select the server. Here you’ll see other information about CPU, Load, Memory and Disk.

I am getting the same warning message on my managed database (MySQL) - / 2 GB RAM / 1vCPU / 25 GB Disk / Primary only / NYC3 - MySQL 8

I have sent several support requests by=ut they keep reverting back with same message as the warning, no help at all.

I just want to see the information on disk space used, but no luck at all! This is becoming pain with the managed database.
