We keep our repositories on a dedicated file system (ext4) and run 
"collectd" on the box to track file system space usage (the "df" plugin).

Combine that with a graphing tool for collectd that can read the RRD 
files (such as the web-based CGP front-end) and we get nice pretty charts.

As you can see in Week 27-29, we had some runaway growth which alerted 
me that I needed to take a look at what was being automatically 
committed.  In our case, it was FSVS doing automated commits of a Linux 
box where we should have ignored/excluded some additional directories.

When looking at my quarterly graph (13 weeks), CGP gives me numbers like:

Used (Minimum) 96.9GB Used (Last) 99.2GB - which means I have only seen 
2.3GB of growth over 13 weeks, or about 10GB per year at current rate of 

We also run a small script each day that checks the file systems and 
sends an alert if any file system is over 75% full.
