Disk quota management

Introduction


With multi users systems, administrators must protect against users filling the disk. Often, users remove unneeded files only when prodded to, resulting eventually in a scarcity of space. Runaway programs may fill up large amounts of disk space as well, often through log files such as that recording errors. It is possible to limit the amount of files, directories and disk space used by a user.
