Hopper to enforce scratch quotas as of Mon Apr 25

April 15, 2011 by Helen He

We will start to enforce quotas on Hopper $SCRATCH and $SCRATCH2 file systems starting Monday, Apr 25.  The default user quotas for $SCRATCH and $SCRATCH2 combined are 5 TB of space usage, and 5 Millions inodes (i.e., number of files and directories).  Users over the quota limit will not be able to submit new batch jobs once the quotas are enforced.

The command "myquota" can be used to display your current usage.  Please take this chance to clean up your usage and back up important files to HPSS. 
You may submit the following Quota Increase Request Form to request a larger quota:
