RedHat 6.0 User quotas

RedHat 6.0 User quotas

Post by Amir Mali » Sat, 07 Aug 1999 04:00:00

I will be having thousands/millions of visitors and I would like to limit
each user to 5MB of space, this includes homepages and e-mail. This can be
accomplished easily if you use IMAP with mail/ folders in the user's home
directory. All of the users are in the group: users.


something with?? edquota

1. Quotas : Format of quota.users & quota.groups ?


I am running Linux-FT with kernel 1.2.13 and quota patches. I would like
to enable quotas in order to control memory usage by apps (I'm trying to
debug an app that keeps grabbing all system memory, preventing me from
typing kill).

In order to enable quotas, files called quota.users and quota.groups
need to be present in the root directory. The 'edquota'
program is supposed to be used to set these up, but it simply invokes vi,
expecting the user to know the file format. The man pages say that
the file format is 'inscrutable', but don't actually describe it anywhere!

Anyone know the correct format ?

Thanks in advance,
