Idle database using more and more storage

I set up a 3-node cluster a few days ago to evaluate, and it’s been sitting idle since. I haven’t created any databases or users yet.

It started off with 10 replicas per node, and now it is at 26 replicas per node. Storage usage has also increased to more than 600MB per node. I believe it started off at around 10MB per node.

What is happening here? Is this normal?

Hi @pooper, these FAQs should help clarify what’s happening. If not, please let us know.
