Used Space Settings
The "Used Space Settings" page is used to configure the behavior of periodically recalculating the used space for storage servers and cloud storage accounts.
The background service is disabled and has a 12 hour interval period by default.
If enabled, the used space for storage servers and cloud storage accounts will be recalculated when the web application is started.
The background service will iterate through each storage server and cloud storage account to recalculate their used space.
After the used spaces have been recalculated, the background service will wait until the specified interval period has elapsed and then run the process again.
The used space will be recalculated for each storage server and cloud storage account in parallel, with a maximum degree of parallelism set to the number of processors of the current machine.
The minimum interval is 1 minute.
The maximum interval is 99 days, 23 hours, and 59 minutes.
If the background service is currently recalculating used spaces, any changes to these fields will take affect after the recalculation has completed.
If the background service is disabled and not currently recalculating used spaces, the web application will check every 5 minutes to see if it has been enabled.
Only users with the
Edit Settings role permission may save changes to these fields.
To enable logging specifically for the periodic timer:
- Enable logging for the "Management Server" Web Site to at least the
appsettings.jsonand add the component within
- A message will be logged in the logs directory (ex. "C:\Program Files (x86)\NovaStor\NovaBACKUP Central Management\WebRoot\Web\bin\Logs"). For example:
Periodic recalculation of used space background service has started.
Periodic recalculation of used space background service has completed.
Periodic recalculation of used space background service failed.
