Why is hosted feature layer so much larger than data in fgdb?

Question asked by karolfrancisx2 on May 12, 2020

Hello all,

I have a line data layer saved as a feature class in a file geodatabase. The unzipped size of the fgdb is 80.3MB. When I upload this data to AGOL, the hosted feature layer for this data is 212MB.


I have disabled editing, sync, and also have not enabled the optimize layer drawing option. When I check the size of the same dataset hosted in our SDE server, the size is 135MB.


Is there anything I can do to reduce the size of this hosted feature layer? Why has it grown so extensively in storage size when I upload to AGOL?


Thanks for your help!
