ME Print Quota Changes

How to check your Disk Quota

All ME account have a disk quota set to ensure availability of disk space for all users. This quota can only be accurately checked from the UNIX shell. The information you see when looking at your R:\ drive from a windows system is close to your quota but not absolutely accurate. The conversion from a UNIX file system to a windows file system can create errors in estimated free space available.

As of the Fall of 2013, all ME students have a 20GB disk quota on the server tools.ecn.purdue.edu.

The department offers shared group spaces as well. These spaces are hosted on the server project.ecn.purdue.edu and do not have a disk quota. These groups are available for the duration of the current semester for any ME academic course need. There is a form to request this space available in ME 2042 and this form will require your professors signature.

To Check your disk quota using the UNIX system, do the following

  1. Open a command prompt on tools.ecn.purdue.edu.
               

  2. Type /usr/sbin/quota -v at the prompt.    Below is an example for user mconsult. In this case, mconsult is using 163mb with a 500mb quota

    EXAMPLE:

    mconsult:tools:~% /usr/sbin/quota -v
    Disk quotas for mconsult (uid 9754):
    Filesystem      usage  quota  limit  timeleft files quota limit timeleft
    /export/home/c  163193 500000 505000          10026 0     0
