I just moved from Owncloud to Nextcloud and was using Amazon S3 as a back end. I’ve been watching the utilization, and it’s a lot higher than I would have expected - for my relatively small number of files and data (90MB) there’s a gigantic number of GET requests - over 14M in just the few days I’ve been transferring things over, so it’s looking to be a more expensive than I would have hoped. Even on the PUT side, it’s approaching 500k for around 600 files and directories.
I would have assumed that Nextcloud keeps metadata (size, checksum, etc.) in the local database and would only hit S3 when it actually needs to download a file. Anyone have an experience in actual utilization, and if there’s room for optimization?
