Sunstone tells me confusing facts about datastore capacity

Hi Community Members,

in Sunstone > Storage > Datastores it tells me that the file and the image datastore have each stored 7.8 GB out of 13 GB. As far as I understand it, the datastores are the folders 0, 1 and 2 in the /var/lib/one/datastores/ directory of the Frontend. They are actually empty, so I would like to pose two questions:

  1. What determines the max size of a datastore (in this case the 13 GB that sunstone is showing me)?
  2. Why does it tell me that there are 7.8 GB stored when the directories are actually empty?

Thanx for your appreciated effort.

you’re right in your installation those datastores are found in the /var/lib/one/datastores.

Though they’re empty I’d say the capacity is the one of the filesystem/partition where /var/lib/one/datastores is living. So if for example you’re using only one partition… the reported usage for those datastores would be the same as the usage for root partition. Run a df -Th from the command line and check if that 7.8 GB is reported.
