How to check quota status on Linux Servers

Quota is set on your Home Directory. There is also a quota on extension directory. CSM (TA) users also have quota on their Unix Inbox mail.


How to check your Home directory quota:

To view the current status on Home directory do the following:

  1. SSH to CSA or CSM or CSL3 linux servers.
  2. invoke this command:

df  -H   ~/

The results will look like this:

For  CSA users (Seggel) Home directory:

Filesystem           Size    Used    Avail   Use%   Mounted on
uns40ns:/home_sg     20G    727M     19G     4%     /home

The size is your current  quota.

For CSD/M users (TA) Home directory:

Filesystem         Size    Used    Avail     Use%   Mounted on
uns40ns:/home_ta   7.6G    292M    7.3G      4%     /home

Check  ( for CSD/M users (TA) only)  Inbox Unix Mail (Not exchange)  quota   :

Use command:    quota -v  -s -f    /var/spool

Disk quotas for user YOUR_USER(uid YOUR-ID):
 Filesystem  space    quota  limit   grace files quota limit grace
/dev/mapper/centos-var
            64732K    782M   831M   3     1000   1100

The space is what is used. quota is the soft limit. limit is the hard limit.

If you see a star * near the number of space, it means that you are over quota !

Getting to the hard limit will disable any use on your files. In this case you need to open request on IT  Help Desk.
