Lifetime should show correct database size information

By Ravi V on 5 Sep 2017

It is misleading for users to see incorrect database size information in lifetime (This database size info in lifetime is fetched from Amazon RDS as per this article : https://success.outsystems.com/Support/Enterprise_Customers/Maintenance_and_Operations/Database_storage_on_OutSystems_public_cloud#I_deleted_a_lot_of_data_I_had_created_by_mistake_(or_I_cleaned_up_a_lot_of_data)._Why_doesn't_LifeTime_reflect_that_change.3F

The lifetime shows reserved space rather than actual space usage. Instead lifetime should query the database directly and show the actual database space rather than depending on Amazon RDS.

It will be better if we show both Amazon RDS and Actual Database space information in the lifetime environment.

Hi Ravi, 

Are you proposing to remove the information about reserved space?

The reserved space is the resource that your subscription is consuming, and therefore the metric that matters from an OutSystems subscription amount point of view.

Wouldn't you need that as well?

Hi Joao,

I am just proposing that we should show correct database size information in lifetime. 

Currently once the database size is full, life time no longer shows right information even after we clear out lot of space in the database.

This will lead users to confusion as to why the database sizes are not updated. In these cases lifetime should query the database directly and show correct size information.

Thanks

I lobby for showing both values. Reserved and actual.

Right now for Amazon installations the storage usage bases on "Reserved" value which brings to confusions. It would be good to use "In use" value" instead.

HI Michal,

This looks like a duplicate of https://www.outsystems.com/ideas/3174/lifetime-should-show-correct-database-size-information

Do you agree?
