Monitoring Google Transfer Appliance Storage Usage

As you complete data capture jobs, storage is consumed on Transfer Appliance. You can monitor storage usage to maximize the amount of data you capture to Transfer Appliance while avoiding job failures due to no remaining storage. We recommend reviewing the available capacity compared to the size of a planned capture job before starting the job.

Transfer Appliance displays warnings and issues notifications as it approaches full capacity. Notifications start when around 5 terabytes (TB) of storage space remains and are repeated for each further terabyte consumed.

  1. On a workstation, connect to the Transfer Appliance web interface.
  2. In the Storage pane, review the pie chart to see what percentage of Transfer Appliance storage space is free.
