DVC newbie here. Thanks for developing a much-needed tool.
I was wondering if there is a way to obtain the size information of the dvc files/folders before issuing a dvc pull. I have searched through the manual but failed to find any information.
Say I have
datasets.dvc file uploaded by a teammate and I would like to learn it’s size prior to downloading it.
DVC version: 1.7.9
Hi @ozyo !
There is no such feature right now, but we’ve recently added size fields to our dvc files https://github.com/iterative/dvc/issues/3256 and we will be able to use them to approximate how much data we need to download/upload without taking deduplication into account. We also plan to add a more precise mechanism to account for deduplication in such donwload/upload predictions. Both will be added to commands like
dvc status -c/
dvc ls/etc (e.g. https://github.com/iterative/dvc/issues/1312). So stay tuned!
