Luckily, I learned that lesson once already and /var is mounted on top of an LVM storage pool in the Ubuntu VM that runs reposado. After a quick 'df -h' I switched over to ##osx-server and asked about the yoyo's storage requirements. gneagle suggested I do some investigation on my own and publish what I discovered.
I decided to stop the repo_sync run for the time being and disable the cronjob.
Later, I got curious and whipped this up in an iPython notebook after briefly taking a look at the catalog itself.
#!/usr/bin/python import plistlib import urllib2 catalog_url = 'http://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-10.10-10.9-mountainlion-lion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog' total_size = 0.0 yoyo_sucatalog = urllib2.urlopen(catalog_url).read() yoyo_plist = plistlib.readPlistFromString(yoyo_sucatalog) yoyo_prod = yoyo_plist['Products'] for k in yoyo_prod: for item in yoyo_prod[k]['Packages']: total_size += item['Size'] print str(total_size / 1073741824) + ' GiB' print str(total_size / 1000000000) + ' GB'
And the output?
So there you have it. Approximately 130-140 Gigs (for varying definitions of Gig).
There is probably some insignificant amount of overhead in everything that comes down from the server too. *shrug*
Looks like I need to add a drive to the VM and expand the pool. :)
