The issue you are facing: The Database size unusually large. Is this normal?
I have data over 5TB (and growing) with 500+ users accessing (via LDAP Authentication). The database size was 50GB two weeks ago and its now oever 300GB. The server is almost 4 weeks old. The data volume of 5TB was synced via the nextcloud client from a regular Windows File Server.
The server started freezing, so I have bumped the server on to 16 Core, 64GB RAM. I have taken all optimization steps for DB, and NGINX optimization. The server is currently utilizing 57 GB of RAM and 2% CPU. Nextcloud is currently operating very smoothly and flawlessly, except for some PHP based errors from LDAP. My worry is the size of the database and the speed its growing.
I just want to know if this is normal? Please advise.
