Aurora Postgres to Snowflake CDC database size growth irregularities


Concerns about irregular database size growth when replicating Aurora Postgres to Snowflake with CDC, despite no new data being added. Seeking insights on potential causes and whether the growth is normal.


Hi everyone! Recently I started to replicate an Aurora Postgres to Snowflake with CDC. The database is still small. I’m now a bit afraid of its growth. The database size was 50Mb before, and now it is 450Mb. Somebody has some insight of what may be happening? The growth periods are irregular and there was no new data yesterday for it to grow. What can be happening? Is it normal?
