Verifying Resource Usage

It is important to keep track of how much resources are needed to run the M-Files system. If the resource consumption reaches certain thresholds, it might be time to consider upgrading your system. See also System Requirements and Technical Details for the hardware and system operating requirements.

Monitor at least the following resource components:
  • vault metadata and file data size
    Note: You can check the location of the metadata file and the file data folder in the Document Vault Properties dialog in M-Files Admin. See Checking the Size of a Firebird Metadata File for detailed instructions.
  • memory
  • disk space and health
  • backup size and duration (should not overlap with optimization)
