The Stats for Space Usage view can help you identify which Tableau content uses the most disk space on the server. Disk space usage displays by user, by project, and by the size of the Tableau content (workbook, data source, flow output, or virtual connection) and is rounded down to the nearest number.

Note that virtual connections require Data Management. See About Data Management for details.

To open this view, click Site Status on the left nav, and then under Dashboard, click Stats for Space Usage.

Use the Min Size filter to control which Tableau content displays, based on the amount of space they use.

Three bar graphs give you information about space usage on your Tableau Cloud:

  • Which Users Use the Most Space—This shows the users who own data sources and workbooks that use the most space. Click a user name to filter the next two graphs for that user. Click the data source bar or the workbook bar for a user to filter the next two graphs for that type of object for that user. Click the selected user or bar to clear the selection.

  • Which Projects Use the Most Space—This shows the projects with the data sources and workbooks that use the most space. If a user or object type is selected in the Which Users Use the Most Space graph, this displays information specific to the selection.

  • Which Workbooks, Data Sources, Flows, and Virtual Connections Use the Most Space—This shows which Tableau content uses the most space. The bars are color-coded based on the length of time since the last refresh.

Move your cursor over any bar to display usage details:

Click on a bar to select it and update the other areas of the view based on that selection.
