Is it possible to see how much disk space is being used by an EPDM vault via the Administration tool or a special search query? I do not have access to our EPDM server but I would like to monitor our disk usage.
If you are responsible for administering an EPDM Vault, you need access to the both the Archive Server and Database server. Without that you will always have a limited view of your system.
Without having access to the File Server, I'm not aware of a way to determine the filesize of your vault.
Even if you're not logged in you cannot access it.
I found it by right clicking the local view and going to "Properties"
Seems silly to have a license consumed to keep an eye on the size :/
I don't think that number includes all versions. You really need to go to the hard drive of the server right click the vault folder and get its properties to see how much space is being consumed. There are are many files for various versions although not all versions create a copy of the file. If only data card values changed, and they are not mapped variables, then no file version gets created, just a pointer in a text file to use a previous versions file.
The Revisions table does track the size of each file, so I bet you could write a report to sum up all the file sizes.
It wouldn't be perfectly accurate, because there are XML files and such in the vault that would not be in this list and files versioned because of only a data card edit are listed.... but if you are looking for a rough estimate, this seems like a quick and easy solution?
