Storage usage quota

Version history

A project’s repository has a free storage quota of 10 GB. When a project’s repository reaches the quota it is locked. You cannot push changes to a locked project. To monitor the size of each repository in a namespace, including a breakdown for each project, you can view storage usage. To allow a project’s repository to exceed the free quota you must purchase additional storage. For more details, see Excess storage usage.

View storage usage

To help manage storage, a namespace’s owner can view:

  • Total storage used in the namespace
  • Total storage used per project

To view storage usage, from the namespace’s page go to Settings > Usage Quotas and select the Storage tab. The Usage Quotas statistics are updated every 90 minutes.

If your namespace shows N/A as the total storage usage, push a commit to any project in that namespace to trigger a recalculation.

A stacked bar graph shows the proportional storage used for the namespace, including a total per storage item. Click on each project’s title to see a breakdown per storage item.

Storage usage statistics

Version history
cautionThis feature might not be available to you. Check the version history note above for details.

The following storage usage statistics are available to an owner:

  • Total namespace storage used: Total amount of storage used across projects in this namespace.
  • Total excess storage used: Total amount of storage used that exceeds their allocated storage.
  • Purchased storage available: Total storage that has been purchased but is not yet used.

Excess storage usage

Excess storage usage is the amount that a project’s repository exceeds the free storage quota. If no purchased storage is available the project is locked. You cannot push changes to a locked project. To unlock a project you must purchase more storage for the namespace. When the purchase is completed, locked projects are automatically unlocked. The amount of purchased storage available must always be greater than zero.

The Storage tab of the Usage Quotas page warns you of the following:

  • Purchased storage available is running low.
  • Projects that are at risk of being locked if purchased storage available is zero.
  • Projects that are locked because purchased storage available is zero. Locked projects are marked with an information icon (note) beside their name.

Excess storage example

The following example describes an excess storage scenario for namespace Example Company:

Repository Storage used Excess storage Quota Status
Red 10 GB 0 GB 10 GB Locked
Blue 8 GB 0 GB 10 GB Not locked
Green 10 GB 0 GB 10 GB Locked
Yellow 2 GB 0 GB 10 GB Not locked
Totals 30 GB 0 GB - -

The Red and Green projects are locked because their repositories have reached the quota. In this example, no additional storage has yet been purchased.

To unlock the Red and Green projects, 50 GB additional storage is purchased.

Assuming the Green and Red projects’ repositories grow past the 10 GB quota, the purchased storage available decreases. All projects remain unlocked because 40 GB purchased storage is available: 50 GB (purchased storage) - 10 GB (total excess storage used).

Repository Storage used Excess storage Quota Status
Red 15 GB 5 GB 10 GB Not locked
Blue 14 GB 4 GB 10 GB Not locked
Green 11 GB 1 GB 10 GB Not locked
Yellow 5 GB 0 GB 10 GB Not locked
Totals 45 GB 10 GB - -
