Quotas are enforced on the BisonNet storage system in order to decrease the likelihood that one user could fill up the storage system and prevent other users from using the environment. Most users only have one quota, which is the amount of data stored in their BisonNet home directory. The default quota for users is 100GB. Please let us know if you need additional space by emailing your request and approximate storage needs to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To view your home directory quota and usage, run the command:
Disk quotas for user abc123 (uid 999999): Filesystem space quota limit grace files quota limit grace 10.200.11.18:/home 18246M 450G 500G 130k 4295m 4295m
This example indicates that the user has a quota limit of 500GB (450GB is a soft limit) and is currently using 18,246MB (about 18.2GB).
Some users also have an archive directory, which has a separate quota. Here’s an example with an archive quota:
Disk quotas for user abc123 (uid 999999): Filesystem space quota limit grace files quota limit grace 10.200.11.18:/archive 7234M 16384G 16384G 2 4295m 4295m 10.200.11.18:/home 18246M 450G 500G 130k 4295m 4295m
In addition, for those that have a shared data directory in /data, quotas are enforced on those directories as well. We currently do not have a way for you to check available space there. If you need to know your usage, email email@example.com.
