laravel-disk-monitor can monitor the usage of the filesystems configured in Laravel. Currently only the amount of files a disk contains is monitored.

This package was initially build in the "Let's build a package together" video of the Laravel Package Training video course.

Support us

We invest a lot of resources into creating best in class open source packages. You can support us by buying one of our paid products.

We highly appreciate you sending us a postcard from your hometown, mentioning which of our package(s) you are using. You'll find our address on our contact page. We publish all received postcards on our virtual postcard wall.


You can install the package via composer:

composer require spatie/laravel-disk-monitor

You can publish and run the migrations with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\DiskMonitor\DiskMonitorServiceProvider" --tag="migrations"
php artisan migrate

You can publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\DiskMonitor\DiskMonitorServiceProvider" --tag="config"

This is the contents of the published config file:

return [
     * The names of the disk you want to monitor.
    'disk_names' => [

Finally, you should schedule the Spatie\DiskMonitor\Commands\RecordsDiskMetricsCommand to run daily.

// in app/Console/Kernel.php

use \Spatie\DiskMonitor\Commands\RecordsDiskMetricsCommand;

class Kernel extends ConsoleKernel
    protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule)
       // ...


You can view the amount of files each monitored disk has, in the disk_monitor_entries table.

If you want to view the statistics in the browser add this macro to your routes file.

// in a routes files


Now, you can see all statics when browsing /my-disk-monitor-url. Of course, you can use any url you want when using the diskMonitor route macro. We highly recommand using the auth middleware for this route, so guests can't see any data regarding your disks.
