    I would like to see more tables on the Dashboard that show the size of files currently stored against the individual user and also the groups.
    This would enable us to see where disk space is currently being used

    There are graphs on the Dashboard that show CPU, memory, and swap file usage over time, but I have *never* needed them. But there have been several times when it would've been incredibly useful to have insight into storage utilization and distribution. That happened to me this morning when I got an email from our LiquidFiles server that said that the storage space was 97% full. But there's pretty much zero information about what caused it to be that way.

    LiquidFiles Server: I need more disk space.
    Me: Why? What happened?
    LiquidFiles Server: I have no idea.

    I'm not saying that CPU, RAM, and swap file usage graphs aren't important. But graphs that show growth over time by share (and in the ephemeral download queue, and probably by user/group as well) seem even more important.
