"done" metric using an insane amount of disk space


(Thomas Seifert) #1

Hello,

I’ve just checked for my disk space usage and found out that its reporting the metric “done” being using most of the space.
What is that metric about? If its not useful … can I do something about it?

Thanks,

Thomas

Hi,

Where do you see this view? I don’t know a database table called done in Matomo. Or am I misunderstanding your issue.

It shown in “Database Usage” under “Diagnostics” as a “Metric”, not a specific table.
See the bigger screenshot below

Does anyone have any ideas?
I found it in the numeric tables, might be because of a couple thousand sites in piwik and that is stored at least for each day.
Can I delete the ones more than a year ago possibly?
Or will it try to reprocess?

Thanks,

Thomas

Hi,

I am not sure what the done is exactly, but it is taking the largest amount of space in my instance

Delete old archived reports in the Anonymize data settings should be what you want.

Just keep in mind that if you don’t have the raw visitor logs anymore, the data is lost.

Thanks but I have it setup like that and funny enough especially the done entries are not (all?) being deleted.
