Manage disk space

You can find the total storage capacity for your Cloud project in your Magento Commerce Cloud contract and on your Magento account page. Each project card in your account shows the number of environments, the storage capacity in GB, and the number of users.

You can check disk space usage in each environment using the disk free command, which reports the amount of disk space used by the file system. You must use SSH to log in to a remote environment.

1
df -h

The -h option displays the report using a human-readable format (KB, MB, or GB).

For the database, you can use the Magento Commerce Cloud CLI to check approximate disk space usage:

Allocating disk space

Two configuration files control the allocation of disk space in the Integration environment: the .magento.app.yaml file and the .magento/services.yaml file. Each file contains the disk property, which defines the disk size value in MB for the respective configuration.

Application disk space

The .magento.app.yaml file controls the persistent disk space available to the Magento application.

To increase disk space for your application:

  1. In your local development environment, open the .magento.app.yaml configuration file.

  2. Set a new value for the disk property (in MB).

    1
    
    disk: <value-mb>
    
  3. Save changes in the file.

  4. Add, commit, and push your code changes.

    1
    
    git add -A && git commit -m "Increase disk space for application" && git push magento <branch-name>
    

    The changes take effect after you push the updated YAML file to the remote environment.

Service disk space

The .magento/services.yaml file controls the disk space available to each service, such as MySQL and Redis.

To increase disk space for a service:

  1. In your local development environment, open the .magento/service.yaml configuration file.

  2. Add or find a service in the file. See more about configuring services.

  3. Set a new value for the disk property (in MB).

    <name>:
        type: <service-name>:<service-version>
        disk: <value-mb>
    
  4. Save changes in the file.

  5. Add, commit, and push your code changes.

    1
    
    git add -A && git commit -m "Increase disk space for service" && git push magento <branch-name>
    

    The changes take effect after you push the updated YAML file to the remote environment.

No space left

The build cache can grow over time. If you receive a warning that states No space left on device, try clearing the build cache and redeploying:
