Quota enforcement on Fram

Dear Fram User,

We have fixed the broken quota indexes on Fram /cluster file system.
Due to heavy disk usage on both Fram and NIRD, we need to enforce quotas on all relevant areas:

  • /cluster/home
  • /cluster/projects
  • /cluster/shared

To be able to control disk usage on the areas mentioned above, group ownerships are enforced nightly.

To avoid job crashes prior to starting jobs, please make sure that unix users and groups you are a member of have enough free quota, be it block or inode quotas.

This Wikipedia page gives good explanation about the block and inode quota types.

To check quotas on Fram, you may use the dusage command. i.e.

# list all user and groups quotas
dusage -a
# for help use
dusage -h

Thank you for your understanding!
