Hi Dhrumil,

  • Provide more information like you are storing attachments in file system or in database ?
  • If file system then your confluence server is unix server or windows server ?

For Standard Confluence installation assuming you are using UNIX box and file system to store attachment then you can use below command to find top 10 largest files in KBs. Confluence home is your confluence home directory or basically you need to use path to attachment

find <confluence-home>/attachments/ -printf '%s %p\n'| sort -nr | head -10

Hi Saravanan,

when you run the above command you will get to 10 largest file. Confluence doesn't save attachment as .pdf .doc etc in file system.
Interpreting file name from this will not be easy. Confluence Store attachments in the following hierarchy mentioned in this link https://confluence.atlassian.com/conf53/hierarchical-file-system-attachment-storage-411109022.html

Also if you want to find where attachments for particular space is saved you can run this in your browser
<confluence url>/admin/findspaceattachments.jsp

Coming back to your question

Interpreting below output to identify actual file name is challenge
415176704 (size in KB) <confluence-home>/attachments/ver003/67/132/174882817/65/246/174496065/174654877/1

It would be easier to find attachment name from Database of if you know the details
Second last number of the above output will give you attachment id then run below query in database

select attachmentid, title from attachments where attachmentid = '174654877'


Once you know attachment name you can directly search in confluence with that name

Hopefully this helps.
