Storage Quotas & Usage
Displays a statistical summary of storage quotas on the cluster.
Create a storage quota
Enables you to define a new storage quota, which includes the following settings:
Setting
Options
Required
Quota type
Directory quota
Set storage limits on a directory.
User quota
Set storage limits on data from a specific user or all users. Specific-user quotas take precedence over a default user quota.
Group quota
Set storage limits on all members of a specific group or all members of a default group (every group). Any specific-group quotas that you configure take precedence over a default group quota. Associating a group quota with a default group quota creates a linked quota.
Yes
Path
Browse to a specific directory path below /ifs. The directory and any subdirectories are included in the storage quota.
Note Image

Do not create quotas of any type in the OneFS root directory (/ifs). A root-level quota can significantly degrade cluster performance.

Yes
Quota Accounting
Include snapshots in the storage quota
Specifies that any snapshots that are stored in the directory path are included in the storage quota.
Include data-protection overhead in the storage quota
Specifies that any storage that is associated with data protection overhead is included in the storage quota.
No
Quota Limits
Track storage without specifying a storage limit
Tracks usage without specifying a storage limit.
Specify storage limits
Specify limits for the storage quota, and configure limit notifications. You can specify three limits: advisory limit, soft limit, and hard limit. Advisory and soft limits can be used to trigger notifications to users before the quota reaches its threshold. A hard limit indicates that the quota threshold is reached, and can trigger a hard limit notification to be sent and prevent data from being written.
You can turn off notifications for the storage quota, or use notification rules for the various limits. Default notification rules are specified for all quotas under Settings. Custom notification rules can be set on a per-quota basis.
Yes
