Product Update: An Easy Way To Find The Cause of Disk Usage Spikes in Amazon Redshift

In August we worked on a few new features in intermix.io that make your life as a data engineer easier when working with Amazon Redshift.

For example, “Disk full” errors can be one of the performance issues you may encounter. And so we’ve made it easier to find the cause of disk usage spikes in Amazon Redshift. It will help you to avoid those dreadful “disk full” errors.

How To Find The Cause of Disk Usage Spikes

In your intermix.io dashboard (if you don’t have one, sign-up here for a free 2-week trial), go to the Storage Analysis tab. Click anywhere on the Schema chart to get the list of tables for that exact time. The tables are sorted by growth, so the ones which are causing the usage spike show up at the top of the list.

UI Updates

Table info is now consolidated into “Discover -> Tables”.

Next Release
