We setup a Gitlab instance in AWS and then promptly ignored it for about 2-3 weeks. (Nobody and nothing was using it)
When I tried to log into it, turns out the disk was full! We expanded it and it works again.
While I might have thought the culprit was logs, that was only a few megs. Most of the space was in the
Any thoughts? (Actually happened on another AWS instance as well, same non-usage situation.)
I’m not sure what would be consuming so much space. Maybe backups?
We can investigate what is taking up so much space in
/opt/gitlab with the following commands:
du --max-depth 2 -h /var/opt/gitlab/ | sort -hr | head -n 10
du --max-depth 1 -h /opt/gitlab/ | sort -hr | head -n 10
Hmm. I don’t know if my systems guy deleted something, but
/var/opt is smaller now.
2.7GB is in
/opt/gitlab/embedded (the bulk of /opt/gitlab).
IDK. I appreciate the answer and I’ll have to keep my eye on it.
