How to estimate the space a git repository will take on a source version control server? For example, given k commits every day, with x kB of code per commit, my repository will take n GB of server storage after 1 month.
I am trying to investigate increased storage usage on a server I use solely for hosting an instance of Gitlab. No CI/CD (yet), just source version control. I recently realized that one year of using the server compounded to about 80GB of storage, while our repositories barely come up to 1GB, as seen in the GitLab Project menu.
GitLab is installed via Docker.
