Is their any way to see the size of a confluence space, number of attachments etc.

1 answer

Easiest way that I know of is to use direct SQL queries against the database.

1) Install the SQL and Cache plugins for Confluence
2) Install the macro-security plugin for confluence and restrict SQL to admins only
3) Configure a datasource in your <install>/conf/server/.xml config file with a read-only user that has access to the confluence database.
4) Create a wiki page and add the markup to query and render the results directly in the wiki page:

This macro will render a table with three columns: | page total | space name | space key |

select count(distinct CONTENT.title) as "Pages", SPACES.spacename as "Space", SPACES.spacekey as "Key" from CONTENT, SPACES where CONTENT.spaceid IS NOT NULL and CONTENT.spaceid = SPACES.spaceid group by CONTENT.spaceid order by Pages DESC

This macro will render a pie chart and a table that displays the totals across you entire site for: Pages, Attachments, Comments, Mail, Drafts, and User Status. You should be able to modify the query to select only from specific spaces quite easily:

 - %1%|legend=false|tables=content | attachment=^Confluence Content.png |

select contenttype as Type, count(distinct CONTENT.title) as "Count" from CONTENT group by contenttype having Count > 0
select contenttype as Type, count(*) as "Count" from CONTENT where contenttype='COMMENT' group by contenttype having Count > 0
select "ATTACHMENTS" as Type, count(distinct title) as "Count" from ATTACHMENTS having Count > 0
order by Count DESC
