Re: postgres out of disk space

Matthew Sykes <matthew.sykes@...>

Droplets and app packages should be pruned when the applications they're
associated with are deleted. Only one or two versions of the droplet are
ever held and only copy of the application bits.

There's another blob store that holds application resources for resource
match flow when uploading an app. Those resources are not pruned so you
should make sure that you disable that in your manifest if you don't want
that behavior.

The droplet blob store is clearly your issue - not events.

ah, it’s not postgres:

90M postgres

it’s actually:

94G shared/

Does it keep a copy of each artifact ever pushed?

Or is this part of the event storage, controlled by these properties:


cutoff_age_in_days: 31


cutoff_age_in_days: 31


cutoff_age_in_days: 31

Does your database occupy this 100 GB? Or something else like logs?

And I’m worried it’ll just happen again in a few months.
