I'm sorry you had to deal with this, I suppose I don't wake up to 2am pages the
way I used to :-/

Andrew, Daniel and I have been cleaning up more disk space on cucumber which
was previously wasted.

We did get disk usage alerts from Datadog but they only fire when disks hit the
200MB threshold which is clearly too close to the knife's edge. I've updated
the monitor in Datadog to alert at 1GB instead of 200MB.

Our log rotation needs to be updated to rotate and delete after some time

I'm not sure there's much more to do at this time past the exploratory work
that abayer has already been doing trying to hunt unnecessary disk usages on
