I am very confused about what seems to be a disproportionately large storage size for a feature service I am hosting. The feature service contains 6 layers. It's item description page shows that the storage size is 509 mb. Because this seemed strange to me, and I couldn't figure out how to view the individual size of each layer, I decided to go back to my original arcgis pro project and publish each of these 6 layers as separate web layers. After doing so, I checked their individual sizes to see if things added up. Their combined size is nowhere near 509 mb (0.0781 mb + 0.0781 mb + 0.0781 mb + 0.1328 mb + 0.1172 mb + 0.1094 mb = 0.5937 mb). Am I missing something?
I checked the settings for the service and have confirmed that drawing optimization was turned off. I also turned off editing for good measure.
I can't figure out why this service is still so large? Any ideas?
Also, this service used to have additional layers which I have since removed using arcgis online assistant (through the JSON), is it possible that the item description is still registering the old size?
Persefoni Kapotas I am also having this issue. I have a line dataset that is 80.3 MB in an unzipped file geodatabase. When I publish as a hosted feature layer in AGOL it balloons to 212 MB. I do not understand why it is so huge in AGOL, and wonder if there is a way to minimize the growth when the data is published.
