FSLogix default size? how to check current usage.

Hey everyone.

 

It appears users are running into issuse where their FSLogix profile is too small. I notice we don't have a registry key setting the size so I wondered by default what is set? Is there anyway using nerdio to work out what they are current using?

By default, FSLogix profiles are 30GB in size.
As of right now, I don't know of a way in NMM to see the profile size of a user (you can do it if you go to Azure Files>Click on the File Share>Select the User>See the vhdx size). It would be very cool to be able to see this within NMM for each user and have the ability to resize it from the Users blade. But I'm guessing that would have a high technical reporting cost with the Microsoft API.

If you're wanting to change the size of the profile you can by using a registry key or Nerdio FSLogix Profile Setting (Expanding an FSLogix profile disk – Nerdio Help Center), but this is a group setting (i.e.GPO) and not a per-user thing.

Hey ed briscoe,  the default FSLogix profile container size is 30GB.  You can find that in Microsoft's documentation here (SizeInMBs settings):
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/fslogix/reference-configuration-settings?tabs=profiles#fslogix-settings-profile-odfc-cloud-cache-logging

You could always modify the FSLogix configuration by adjusting the SizeInMBs registry in the FSLogix configuration via Nerdio to increase this default limit:
https://help.nerdio.net/hc/en-us/articles/11548097189261-FSLogix-Settings-and-Configuration

This example has a limit of 40GB set:

Dave Stephenson we actually do have a way to check the profile size now if using Azure Files for FSLogix profile storage.  You can view this via our restore module FSLogix shares, saving a trip to the Azure portal.  You'll just want to navigate to Backup and restore from your Azure Files share, you can view the sizes here (no need to restore):

Very cool, Nerdio Virtuoso!

I love this community. It seems like I'm always learning something new. 🤩

It would be great to be able to get an alert on FSLogix VHDX size over a threshold. I've been looking today and haven't found a way to do that yet. Only 3 companies in on AVD now and just recently had a user hit the 30 GB default limit for the first time, but would have been good to know it was getting close.

I am running into the same challenge, did you take the time to figure something out? 

I will update this thread if I find a good way to alert on profile size, it has burned me several times now!

I did find this script on GitHub that may help.
https://github.com/andy2002a/PowerShell/blob/master/RDS/Get-LowDiskSpaceProfileContainer.ps1

Someone with a bit more PowerShell skills may be able to take it from there and turn it into an Azure Runbook.
