Repository storage size strongly increase after each commit

hi

i have repository (90 commits) with CI on gitlab.com and using pages. files size about 370mb. i noticed that after last 10 commits repository storage size increased from small size to about 4+gb. i’ve deleted last pipelines, but storage size keeps the same. how can i decrease it? why it increasing so fast? i didn’t found any information about how i can do this.

Hi,

are you adding large files which incorporate LFS objects?

Cheers,

no, i haven’t large files, but i found out that when CI runs, it creates artifacts for pages for around 300 megabytes, after that i delete pipeline with jobs (so all files should be removed, including artifacts). storage size increasing for that amount (300mb). then i decreased pages bundles to 60 megabytes. storage now increasing for 60 megabytes after each pipeline. maybe there is pages backups? i didn’t found anything how to clear this

Hi,

is that a public project where we can peek into? Pages certainly is a separate storage than the git repository.

Cheers,

no, it’s private, i can add someone to see

Hi, I have similar problem. In pipeline I store some artifacts (node modules 300-400MB) with expiration time set to 1hr. After each build storage size of my repository grows by 300-400MB and never decrese. Now I have 1MB repository with 7GB storage used. My repository is also using pages, but page size is around 0.5MB.

Same here, we have ~1Gb artifacts with expliration time and after each build the repository grows between 100 and 600 Mb and we are up to 9.6Gb. We have two repos, the two with artifacts but one with pipeline cache and one without, so it’s definitely the artifacts.

We’ve done a little julia script, that removes all the artifacts of the jobs using the API.
This is the script:

Are there any plans to resolve the issue?
