Inquiry about Storage Consumption in Pinecone

Dear Pinecone Support Team,

I hope this email finds you well. I am a user of Pinecone’s vector database and I have a question regarding the storage consumption of my indexes. I would like to retrieve information about the storage space used by my index in order to monitor and manage the storage resources effectively.

I have explored the Pinecone Python SDK, but couldn’t find a direct method to retrieve the storage usage statistics programmatically. Therefore, I would like to inquire about the following:

  1. Is there a way to query the storage consumption of an index using the Pinecone Python SDK?
  2. If not, what are the recommended approaches or best practices to monitor and track the storage usage of my indexes?
  3. Are there any plans to provide a storage usage API or a method to retrieve storage statistics in the future?

Any guidance, documentation, or examples you can provide on this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Looking forward to your response.

Kind regards

Hi @jinlong.dai

I think what you need is this: DescribeIndexStats

The response should contain the following data:

I think the Python client should contain the method to retrieve this data.

Hope this helps :slight_smile:
