Which factors contribute to size of bitbucket repo


Hi All,

we would like to know what are all the factors that contribute to the sizing of a repository?

Is it different for cloud and server?

Is repo size proportional to any factors?


Thanks in advance

Mainly the type, complexity and volume of the code and objects you store in it.

The bibucket database is generally quite small (but proportional to your code and objects), and the installation of a mostly fixed size.

If you're storing text in Bitbucket, that is compressible, but if you put in a lot of it, it's going to matter.  Binary files are usually a lot less compressible, and again, if you put in a lot, they'll matter.

It's not massively different for Cloud and Server - the main thing really is the type and volume of stuff you have under source control.
