@plausible Hi there. I'm self hosting plausible and wanted to know if there is a way of automaticly purging old events/data to limit the required disk space?

@der_On hi! there's nothing like that unfortunately. you can reset the stats, not sure if that helps? see docs.plausible.io/reset-site-d

@plausible thanks. I just discovered that plausible data grows very quickly (almost 4gb for 3 small websites within a couple months). Maybe compressing the old data would help and then decompressing on the fly?

@der_On it seems normal. i wouldn't worry about it. it's the clickhouse database but it doesn't go linear in size. you can expect this to continue keeping the same size even with you getting many more visitors or adding more site without growing much in the future too. it is very efficient and that's why we use it
