I suggest you ...

Disk Space Details/Quota Per Application

At the Application Tab. Display Application Disk Data and Disk DB usage in numeric stats and Chart.

Purpose - to help us determine what app has increased in size and/or to help manage disk size.

    Work has been started in this regard, and users would be able to see disk space consumption app wise, and server monthly bandwidth usage.

    We are hoping to release the features in December ’18.

    Cloudways Team.

        In my case I see 18GB is used via the server monitor, but "du" only reports GB from under applications (including backups). System and database size is not included in the latter of course.

        I've found this useful for a rough estimate of application script/data sizes:

        du -ahcBK --max-depth=1 --threshold=1K --exclude='local_backups' | sort -hr

        + 1 for the file manager. Doesn't need to be as extended as on Cpanel, as I understand it's not so safe.

        But these actions are essential:

        - Ability to compress files to a ZIP / TAR.GZ / RAR
        - Ability to move / delete all the files in bulk

        Is this somehow possible without having to do this with SSH commands? They are not very user friendly...

        I suggest a Server Settings Panel for Disk Usage (cPanel-like is ok):

        - Mini Expandable Directory Tree with Disk Usage per Directory;
        - User can select to order by Disk Usage Ascending or Descending;

        I also suggest a (also cPanel-like) File Manager:

        - User can navigate inside the Server from the Platform;
        - User can upload/download files and directories to Server;
        - User can zip/unzip directly from the File Manager, and delete.

        Any way to soft limit each application?

        Let's say I want to run 3 WordPress setups on a 1gb server then can I soft limit the RAM and storage amount for each so one doesn't use other's resources?

        Coming up on 2 years since this was requested. I believe it's time to support this feature.

      • CD commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, please add disk space and traffic limit for each application

      • Scamando commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please add something like this so we can monitor all our applications and know what resources they are using.

        An interface that shows me the current real disk usage at a server-level, and if possible even at the app-level. Right now, the only way to get this information is to login to the server (SSH web interface) and run some Linux commands to show it. Although this is possible and working fine, it can be very time-consuming when dealing with several servers, all the time.

        Great idea and excellent for web apps where you bill per GB of disk space.

        Very much agree. Mainly to control the client's site capacity constraints.
