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.

Good news! Application disk usage information and graphs are now live , and we hope it delivers excellent value and simplify disk management for our users.

We understand that this feature was on the wish list of many users and the release comes a bit late than promised. The feature required extensive testing, thus requiring this long for general release.

    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.

    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.

    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.
