Timescale Forge allows you to resize compute (CPU/RAM) and storage independently at any time. This is extremely useful when users have a need to increase storage (for instance) but not compute. The Timescale Forge console makes this very easy to do for any service.
Before you modify the compute or storage settings for a Forge Service, please note the following limitations and when a change to these settings will result in momentary downtime.
Storage: Storage changes are applied with no downtime, typically available within a few seconds. Other things to note about storage changes:
Compute: Modifications to the compute size of your service (increases or decreases) can be applied at any time, however, please note the following:
To modify the compute or storage of your Service, first select the Service that you want to modify. This will display the service details which list four tabs across the top: Overview, Operations, Metrics, and Logs.
Under the Operations tab, you can perform the same Basic operations as before (Reset password, Pause service, Delete service). There is now a second, advanced section on the left labeled Resources. Selecting this option displays the current resource settings for the Service.
Once you have navigated to the current Service resources, it's easy to modify either the compute (CPU/Memory) or disk size. As you modify either setting, notice that the current and new hourly charges are displayed in real-time so that it's easy to verify how these changes will impact your costs.
As noted above, changes to disk size will not cause any downtime. However, the platform currently only supports increasing disk size (not decreasing it), and you can increase disk size once every six (6) hours.
When you're satisfied with the changes, click Apply (storage resizes only) or Apply and Restart (when modifying compute resources).
