NFS disk space limitation


Hi All,

How do I set a NFS disk space limitation? For example, I only want the user Jon to be able to write no more than 100 megabytes of data.

Thanks,

Jon

1. What is Quota?

Quota allows you to specify limits on two aspects of disk storage: the number of inodes a user or a group of users may possess; and the number of disk blocks that may be allocated to a user or a group of users.

The idea behind quota is that users are forced to stay under their disk comsumption limit, taking away their ability to comsume unlimited disk space on a system. Quota is handled on a per user, per file system basis. If there is more than one file system which a user is expected to create files, then quota must be set for each file system seperately.
See the nicely done mini-HOW-TO or try 'man quota'.
