Set quotas to limit resource use

Contributors netapp-manishc netapp-aherbin netapp-thomi Download PDF of this topic

Add quotas to limit the amount of disk space the quota target can use.

You can set a hard limit and a soft limit for a quota.

Hard quotas impose a hard limit on system resources; any operation that would result in exceeding the limit fails. Soft quotas send a warning message when resource usage reaches a certain level, but they do not affect data access operations, so you can take appropriate action before the quota is exceeded.

Steps
  1. Click Storage > Quotas.

  2. Click Add.
