  1. Tip: Counting the number of attachments on an instance(can be Jira, Confluence...) inside Linux;

    [root@foo bar]# find attachments_dir -type f  | wc -l

    An user requested us this information that is not on System Info page. (wink)

    System Information is rather useless as it doesn't have any units. Content? Search Index Size? Are those pages? MB? 

  3. Hi,

    as above, what exactly does Content and Search Index Size refer to?

    I'd like to know how to identify the total number of pages, number of files, ect.


  4. What does System Information Content include? pages, blogs, attachments, comments? Our Content count says 23,121, but when I use a user macro for count pages per space, I only come up with 13,885. So what is the difference?

  5. I have the same question as above - what does "content" include?

    1. Hi Brian and Michelle Vincent,

      The answer to your question, as far as I'm aware, is all of the above. So, pages, blog posts, attachments, and comments all count as content.
