" ls -lrt " not working ! --- Need a insight from a expert .

Hi ! All

This might be a silly question.. to experts in unix. but defintely its a interesting question and I want to know the root cause.

Here is the problem....

I have a Linux OS box. It has diff files systems.
When I go to a DIR like this
/RootDIR/NFS/myDIR and give ls -lart .. it is not displaying anything.
But when I do this...

cd /RootDIR/NFS
ls -lrt
cd /RootDIR/NFS/myDIR
ls -lrt -- is working.


Then I found out I had huge files under "myDIR" after I remove them.. rather moved them to another DIR ( /RootDIR/NFS/myDIR2). I was able to do a ls -lrt and it was working normal.

> First I thought it was a NFS mounting issue.
but it wasn't.
> second I thought OS is malfuntioning.
> But now, I'm convinced... its just a problem with myDIR "quota"

Having said .. that.

when i give " ulimit" its saying " ulimited".

pls help me to understand... or direct me to some doc where I learn about this.

Thanks a million. !

Code:
cd /RootDIR/NFS/mydir
quota -v

Disk quota can be enforced on a single filesystem or on a user's directory(ies)
There are two components - total bytes used, total number of files used.
Some systems may have other enforceable disk quotas.

Also, define doesn't work. What you are probably seeing is a long "hang" after you enter the command. If your NFS connection is slow/far away and there are lots of files then ls -lrt will take a long time to return. ls has to read all of the file entries on the remote system before it can display the first line.

What are the permissions of the directory /RootDIR/NFS and /RootDIR/NFS/myDIR?

Not sure what version of Linux you're using, but for me, in Solaris, to determine if an account has a quota (and what it might be):
Code:
quota -v username

The problem was.. the current dir was having HUGE files.. 9GB.

Once I move those to a diff file system.. it worked. :-)
