I noticed that I’m running out of space on postgres app. (Unfortunately there are no notifications for that.)
I have tried to add more space by creating a new replica with a larger volume then promoting it to master but it failed. I described similar case a couple weeks ago here Postgres instance count increase fails but didn’t get any response.
> fly volumes create db_data --size 20 ... created > fly scale count 3 Count changed to 3 > fly scale show VM Resources for db VM Size: shared-cpu-1x VM Memory: 2 GB Count: 3 Max Per Region: Not set
I have created a new volume in the same region for the same db app. Scaled postgres to 3 (from 2). It confirmed that count changed to 3. But the third app has never been created. Though
fly scale show says
count: 3, postgres app version has been increased by 1, activity feed shows that new release deployed, list of volumes shows that the new volume remains empty and not attached to a vm,
fly status shows only two apps.
Please advise. I was following steps from this post: How to convert your not-free Postgres to free Postgres
