I'm new to maintaining a galaxy server and I would like some clarification on disk space used for storing datasets. I'm taking over this galaxy server from someone else and wasn't involved in setting it up, so I'm still trying to find my way around.
I was under the impression that the data for the server is stored under GALAXY_ROOT/database/files/000
Running a du -h on this directory gives me 870 Mb.
However, when I run the GALAXY_ROOT/scripts/set_user_disk_usage.py script, it shows me that some users currently use 2 Tb of space.
My question is, what is the best way to keep an eye on disk usage? Where else does galaxy store data (since the outputs from du -h and the script do not agree)?
Thanks for any advice!
