SuSE: Disk quota, tar extraction, Performance & Benchmarking


I have to do a couple of things at class involving those above. I'm more used to a Debian system so I'm a little lost with SuSE.

1. How do I setup disk quota? I originally thought i'd install the quota package and then edit the /etc/fstab file. Well it seems that's more than is needed and one of the other guys told me you could do it through YaST. I have not yet seen it. Anyone know where?

2. Tar extraction. This would really help me out for my personal use too. I have cron setup so it tars up my www dir, home dirs, mysql db dir and others and stores them in /backup/. Anyway Say I needed to restore only a certian user dir if it was removed. How do I access and extract the dir from the tar file without extracting the whole thing. I know I could simply open and drop drag it from the window in KDE, but I was kinda chasing a command.

3. Performance & Benchmarking. With SuSE in particular I was looking for some tools for this. I did a search through the packages on the CDs and only a couple turned up, however they seemed to only be for file system BMing. I also had a look at the commands: top, ps, vmstat, but I get the feeling the teacher wants something more specific to SuSE.

If anyone has an guidance for me, please let me know it would be greatly appreciated. Oh I should also mention I have read through the man pages for a few of these and also had a small look online.

Thanks

As the LQ Rules state, "Do not expect LQ members to do your homework - you will learn much more by doing it yourself." You are doing the right thing by reading the man pages and searching online. Keep at it and good luck with the assignment -- J.W.
