FS_SETQUOTA(1)						       AFS Command Reference						    FS_SETQUOTA(1)

NAME
       fs_setquota - Sets the quota for the volume containing a file or directory

SYNOPSIS
       fs setquota [-path <dir/file path>]
	   -max <max quota in kbytes> [-help]

       fs setq [-p <dir/file path>] -m <max quota> [-h]

       fs sq [-p <dir/file path>] -m <max quota> [-h]

DESCRIPTION
       The fs setquota command sets the quota (maximum possible size) of the read/write volume that contains the directory or file named by the
       -path argument.

       To set the quota on multiple volumes at the same time, use the fs setvol command.

       To display a volume's quota, use the fs examine, fs listquota, or fs quota command.

CAUTIONS
       Currently, the maximum size of a volume is 2 terabytes (2^31 bytes).

OPTIONS
       -path <dir/file path>
	   Names the directory or file for which to set the host volume's quota. Partial pathnames are interpreted relative to the current working
	   directory, which is also the default value if this argument is omitted.

	   Specify the read/write path to the file or directory, to avoid the failure that results from attempting to change a read-only volume.
	   By convention, the read/write path is indicated by placing a period before the cell name at the pathname's second level (for example,
	   /afs/.abc.com). For further discussion of the concept of read/write and read-only paths through the filespace, see the fs mkmount
	   reference page.

       -max <max quota>
	   Sets the maximum amount of file server disk space the volume can occupy.  The quota value should be a positive integer followed by an
	   optional suffix: "K" for kibibytes (1024 bytes, the default), "M" for mebibytes (1024 kibibytes), "G" for gibibytes (1024 mebibytes),
	   and "T" for tebibytes (1024 gibibytes).  A value of 0 sets an unlimited quota, but the size of the disk partition that houses the
	   volume places an absolute limit on the volume's size.

	   If the -path argument is omitted (to set the quota of the volume housing the current working directory), the -max switch must be
	   included with this argument.

       -help
	   Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

EXAMPLES
       The following command imposes a maximum quota of 3000 kilobytes on the volume that houses the /afs/abc.com/usr/smith directory:

	  % fs setquota -path /afs/abc.com/usr/smith -max 3000

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED
       The issuer must belong to the system:administrators group.
