Quota

This application installs the necessary dependencies to use the Quota system.

An administrator can use this utility to restrict how much disk space can each user fill, using a soft and a hard limit.

warning

Please note that only ext4 partitions are supported with quota mounts at this time.

Installation#

You can install the quota application by running the following command.

box install quota

Setup#

As part of the installation you will be asked which drive to use fo the quota functionality. This is due to the fact that quota works on a per-disk basis.

If you are unsure which partition to use, please refer to the help printed into the terminal during the installation.

Management#

The quotas can be managed either using the (Webmin application)[/applications/webmin], or through the command line using the (setdisk)[/scripts/setdisk] script.

All users can see their quota standing by running quota -s.
