Database node disk throughput - high number of writes
I have an application that was "soft launched" recently and only has a small number of users during business hours for now. In the "Database node disk throughput" I see a low number of reads, as expected, but 24 hours a day I see a very LARGE number of writes that hovers around 300,000. Why, in an application that has very little use during the day and literally NONE at night, would there be so many writes? There aren't any database memory swap issues or anything.
Any scheduled events running, this could cause writes on the database.
A loop somewhere in the app, have a look under the running now tab in the cloud portal for your project.
Any published interfaces that are called lots of times?
This are some of the things a would investigate on my app with this behavior.
