Implement User and Group Quotas
Hello, and welcome to this Pluralsight presentation. My name is Andrew Mallett and I'm here as your instructor to help guide you through the module, Implement User and Group Quotas. Are you ready? Then we shall begin. Now you know or at least you should know, this is the last module within this course that we're aiming toward the Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator and also the objectives of the Red Hat Certified System Administrator and you can look forward to gaining your certification soon. I think we just have three more courses to run through within this series. So the exam objective that we've looking at specifically here is setup user and group disk quotas for our file systems, essentially putting a little bit of the disk housekeeping back on our users, so then they start to see warnings about disk space limitations before they actually fill up the entire disk. Now depending on what you use your server for, this could be really important, but if we're hosting user home directories, it is the tendency, I'm sure we're all a little bit guilty of it, that if we are able to store stuff within our home directories, we keep storing stuff within our home directories and we don't think to go back and perhaps tidy some of this up. Well, of course, storage space costs and as an administrator, we have to help manage those costs and we can do that with our user and group quotas. As we run through, we'll be looking at a few demonstrations and we can set up quota management with our extended file systems, our EXT4 file systems, so we can see how to do it perhaps in a more traditional way with using quota management on our extended file systems, and of course, we'll be setting those quota managements and reporting on those quotas. But we'll also see how we can do it for xfs file systems and of course, we've already seen that in CentOS 7 xfs is our file system. So we'll look at some of the tools that xfs brings to the party for us. Our first demonstration is going to begin in the next clip where we're going to take a look at enabling quotas on our extended file systems.
