• Hi everyone,

    Thanks for making this app and forum live.

    I just noticed that my DAVx5 app has been increasing its data usage over the past months…
    August : 12 MB
    September : 35 MB
    October : 118 MB
    November : 429 MB ( and going)

    I’m running v.4.00ose on my Samsung S7 with /e/ OS 0.19 (adapted from Android 7.1.2)
    I use DAVx5 for one nextcloud v.20 account on a shared server : 1 contact account and 4 calendars.

    Could you help me guess why this data has been increasing this way?

    Thanks in advance,

    Firvu, French guy

    Hi,

    @firvu said in Excessive data usage:

    Could you help me guess why this data has been increasing this way?

    How often do you synchronize, and how often do you change data?

    You can always see in Settings / Debug info what DAVx5 does.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your message.

    Sync is set up to auto-sync, but also intervals are generally at 240 min (contacts : 1440 min).

    Data don’t change in a way that could explain that amount of data : a few new/modified contacts, events and tasks per week…

    It doesn’t seem much to me…?

  • developer

    @firvu Can you provide your debug info? What is your past event time limit?

    Otherwise I can just imagine that there’s some problem with the CTags or something like that (for instance some SOGo installations had such problems recently).

    @firvu Which server/service do you use?


  • Hi,
    I just sign up for this problem
    I have a Samsung Galaxy S6, with the Samsung android version
    I run a updated version of DavX5 (currently 4.1-ose) installed from fdroid
    I use framagenda.org as service provider they use nextcloud as software
    I also noticed data usage exploded on the past months (below are the amount of data)
    I have exactly the same usage than before, contacts diary and few agendas

    Mobile data usage (from the 2nd of the month to 1st next month) :
    355MB January (until today 13th)
    759MB December
    1.63G November
    545MB October

    Wifi data usage
    292MB Dec 16th => Jan 13th
    1.67G 18 Nov => Dec 16th
    1.74G Oct 21st => Nov 18th
    7.24MB 23rd Sep => Oct 21st

    It looks something changed in late october

    Here are the debug infos
    logcat.txt debug-info.txt

  • developer

    @rominail Thanks for the logcat. Unfortunately it shows only 01-13 20:38:15 to 01-13 20:38:55 so it doesn’t contain syncs or other relevant things.


  • @rfc2822 Can I do something to help solving this issue?

  • developer

    @rominail Maybe debug logs from a long period (maybe one hour) show the syncs and what is causing them. At the moment, I can’t do anything about this problem because

    • I can’t reproduce the problem,
    • I don’t know what the actual problem is.

  • @rfc2822 Hi everybody,
    Sorry about my long delay. I must say I’m happy to see that other people are having the same issue 🙂
    The problem remains, even if I can see it’s decreasing :
    Nov 2021 : 622 MB
    Dec 2021 : 394 MB
    January 2022 : 215 MB (and going)

    You can find attached my debug info, I hope you’ll find useful information

    Thanks in advance for your help !

    @firvu Hi,

    On my device, DAVx⁵ takes only a few MB / month (except when I use it to access large files with WebDAV). Thanks for the debug info; but I’d need the verbose logs (enable in DAVx⁵ Settings) over at least a few hours to see how often it synchronizes. The basic logs in your debug info don’t contain anything special.

  • @rfc2822 Hi,
    Thanks for your answer.
    Here is a verbose log over a bit more than 2 hours…

    @firvu @rominail We’ve now collected 3 people that are affected by this. It turns out that all of you guys use apps by “Simple Mobile Tools”. And one person (reported in our Ticket System) could solve it by switching from Simple Calendar to another calendar app like etar. Can you try to do the same and see if data usage drops then?


  • @devvv4ever I made the switch, uninstall “simple calendar”, took note of data amount consumed this month, I’ll let you know in few days/weeks if it stopped

    I just did the same, let’s see!
    Thanks for your help
