LucidLink is a scale-out distributed file system that sits on top of object storage. LucidLink splits the data from the metadata and chunks data to a specific block size. As there is virtually no limit to the size of a LucidLink Filespace, aside from potential constraints placed on buckets by specific object storage providers, it may be a little harder to quickly see disk usage statistics in LucidLink.
On Windows a LucidLink Filespace can show up as an endless mount point, that never fills up. On macOS and Linux the mount point does not have associated used size information.
You can see the total size of the Filespace, excluding any snapshots, by reviewing the LucidLink Client user interface.
You can also see how much space is used by right clicking on files or folders in the LucidLink Filespace and selecting properties, or by using
du -bsh on Linux.
