Re: Simple quota in GlusterFS 11

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Revisiting this now, I see there is some basic documentation for GlusterFS 11 simple-quota in its

Has anyone set up simple quotas yet? I don't understand the documentation. Are we supposed to be setting the namespace and the quota on the FUSE mountpoint or on the backend brick? And I get the general idea of the "helper" script, but it would be good for a bit more documentation around it to understand how we apply it to our environments.

Thank you!

Dear list,

I noticed that GlusterFS 11 introduces a new "simple quota" system. According to the pull request¹ the implementation is based on Amar's earlier proposal² and is inspired by work they did in Kadalu. Other than that I don't see any documentation or discussion about these features.

Specifically, it seems that the implementation relies on the quota features of the underlying filesystem (for example XFS or ZFS). This sounds orders of magnitude more efficient than crawling! Can someone explain how it works or share their experience / docs? We had tried the earlier quota implementation and did not have good luck at all.

Thank you,



Alan Orth
