With T159930 resolved, I imagine this can be cleaned up. The dumps project is consuming an order of magnitude more than any other project on it's NFS volume. Last time I understand there was a cleanup process broken, but that the process was supposed to be moved to instance storage anyway.

If this means October - December 2020, that is way too long to hold on to these scarce shared resources @Hydriz. 2.3Tb of the NFS usage is in a directory named "temp". Within this:
$ sudo du -sh *|sort -h 4.0K mediacounts 4.0K translation 45M globalblocks 32G categoriesrdf 1014G cirrussearch 1.3T wikidata
The cirrussearch directory contains 4408 dump files which are all from early 2018. The wikidata directory contains dump files from late 2018 and early 2019. I am not here to judge the intrinsic value of your project or to try and make you feel bad, but I am here to judge the opportunity cost for the Cloud VPS project of this shared storage issue. Your own documentation on sending things to Internet Archive says for them "[...] gigabytes fine, tens of gigabytes problematic, hundreds of gigabytes bad." The same really applies to Cloud VPS. You are beyond the hundreds of gigabytes bad and into the thousands of gigabytes causing real operational issues territory.
Unfortunately my time as a volunteer is scarce too. I am already rushing to clear this backlog of files as fast as I can and would have appreciated this grace period for me to get the project back in order. If there is really nothing that can be done, please feel free to delete the files and we can close this task.
I removed the majority of files from those two directories. The project is now 81G, which still places it high in the list of NFS usage. However, it is no longer an operational issue. I hope this doesn't cause trouble for your project, but the resource will now be in much better shape for all projects.
