Chapter 11. Managing Directory Quotas

download PDF
Directory quotas allow you to set limits on disk space used by directories or the volume. Storage administrators can control the disk space utilization at the directory or the volume level, or both. This is particularly useful in cloud deployments to facilitate the use of utility billing models.

11.1. Enabling Quotas

You must enable directory quotas to set disk limits.
Enable quotas on a volume using the following command:
# gluster volume quota VOLNAME enable
For example, to enable quota on test-volume:
# gluster volume quota test-volume enable 
volume quota : success


  • Do not enable quota using the volume-set command. This option is no longer supported.
  • Do not enable quota while is still running.
