Application Installation Fails Due to Too Much or Too Little Available Capacity

Some existing application installers perform a capacity check prior to running an installation process. Sometimes an installation fails due to too much or too little available capacity. The File Storage service currently reports 8 exabytes of available capacity by default.

File system utilization is calculated by block usage. We use a variable block size optimized for best performance. There can be a delay of up to 1 hour when reporting file system usage, either in the console or by using the df command.

Customers can define how much free space is reported as available to the operating system using the Console, the API or the Command Line Interface (CLI). If your application installation is failing because of too little available space, you can expand the reported available free space. If your application installation is failing because of too much reported available free space, you can reduce it.
