What does the view system information/Confluence usage numbers indicate?

We see a listing of " Content (Current Versions) 19295 ". Does that mean pages? Mbs? attachments?

I've searched in documentation but can't seem to find the meaning for many values on that page....

Can anyone point me to that documentation?

Hi @Hope Niblick ,

Just quoting the same answer from

as it makes perfect meaning.

The "content" field means the total number of rows in the CONTENT table in Confluence database - this includes all versions of pages, blogs, status updates, comments, user information, drafts, etc

The "current version" field, on the other hand, means all of the above except it only counts the latest version of each entity.

OK, the number of rows in the database answers my question. Thanks so much!

It's not rows in the database though.  Pages could have one or many rows in more than one table.

The short answer is that "current" means "what people land on when they ask for a page now".  Not-current means "every revision of everything older".

Simple example - if you had a really basic Confluence that only served up one single page of content, then your "current content" would be 1.  If that page were on version 87, then you'd have 87 pages in the database, and 86 versions in the history, but the current content would be 1.

Bear in mind that Confluence treats everything except configuration as content.  So pages, drafts, questions, blogs, attachments, comments, user detail (beyond what it gets from your ID system), and so-on - it's all content.
