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.

        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.

      • Rosid commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

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

        Hi Cloudways, the control panel is awesome, but for agencies that have many clients, it would be very effective to see how many disk space or bandwidth is used per application instead of per server.

        Because as agencies or SaaS providers this feature / graph / reports will somehow be used to charge clients.

        Once I asked the technician if cPanel is available on Cloudways, and this is the reply:

        "cPanel is not needed with Cloudways servers. Cloudways platform provides its own streamlined, secure and cloud focused console to manage your servers and applications."

        Obviously, the control of particular user is an essential part of server management and it is no way for us to do now.

        So +1

        As a work-around, I'm thinking I could set up a cron job to check the size of a directory and alert me when it gets to a size.

        If you work on this, please add an API request to get the disk space of each application in MB.

        I think this should add as console . Because sometime we may need to control our storage limit for both of application as well as for projects

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agreed. Disk space and traffic per app would be a requirement based on the way we sell hosting accounts to clients.

      • Trevor Nelmes commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        A rather simple graphic like they have in WHM would be great. 1. System Files disk usage, 2. Disk Usage per application, 3. Databases ...

        Seems so silly to have to use SSH to run command prompts.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is a must for me - I resell hosting to my clients, so want to set a custom space / bandwith etc for each app.

      • Tasos Ventouris commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        That is a great idea! I would really love to see it. Having the option to add a limit for each application is a must. If is not technically possible, a workaround where you add limits for notifications would make the work. Set limits for each application and when one of them reach it, you can a notification so you can handle it manual.

        Not only disk, maybe getting database space with their own quota for apps (or linking disk quota into database storage) is a real need for a lot of people.
