Unhappy How to set directory size


Hi All


I need to set size limit for shared directory. Actually i am unable to set directory size for my NFS shared folder

my Dir locate in

/root/ESSR_log

ex :
This ESSR_log Directory size should be 20GB. that mean NFS client only can store up to 20 GB files. NOT MORE

Please help me to solve this problem

Thanks

I would suggest reading the man pages of quota,quotaon,quotaoff.

You can set the owner of the directory using chown and then set the quota for that user or group if that is what is needed.

Hope this helps.
