How did our requests table get so big?

Community Explorer

We've had Canvas for a few years and have been working with Canvas Data for a while now. At the start of November, our requests table had 44 million rows and great at a rate of about 250K rows per week. Sometime around November 3, the size of the table exploded to 87 million rows. On November 2, there were about 44 million rows.

What could cause the requests table to grow by 43 million rows in just one day? Our upload process has come to a screeching halt because of the shear size of the table now.

Has anyone else experienced this before?
