Storage requirements



  • Hi there,

    I am planning on using NodeBB and was wondering how much space would around 10 million posts and 1 million users work out at? As using a VPS can cost a bit (storage-wise) and self-hosted can be relatively cheap, depending how much space the above mentioned will take.

    If anybody can help me out with answering that, that would be great. I am in between NodeBB and Flarum, hence the question. I haven't gotten an answer at Flarum about this, though.

    Scalability is what I want to know. Resources and performance I can figure out myself, but storage is hard to determine.

    Thanks and kind regards,



  • Or if someone can give me the average size of 1 post (in bytes, or KB, or MB, etc) and the average size of 1 user (in bytes, or KB, or MB, etc), that would be helpful.

    Anybody?


  • Admin

    Your main post and user object in bytes

    >Object.bsonsize(db.objects.find({_key:"post:54280"}));
    795
    > Object.bsonsize(db.objects.find({_key:"user:9534"}));
    513
    

    You can also go to /admin/advanced/database to see # of documents, average document size and storage size there.



  • @baris Thank you so much, that was what I was looking for. It uses less space than Flarum does. I think I will be sticking with NodeBB then.

    Also, thanks for pointing out that directory, that will come in handy :)

    That was actually a url, just FYI :)
