Available space after enable quota in XFS

geturmaddy@gmail.com
Hi all,
I am trying to evaluation XFS for NFS server. We need to configure directory level quota in order to better manage storage in the server. I came to know that, we can use project quota which looks similar to directory level quotas. 

I was able to configure project level quota for XFS file system in my Cent)S 5.7 machine. Below are the details

[root@linux-nfs ~]# cat  /etc/issue
CentOS release 5.6 (Final)
Kernel \r on an \m

[root@linux-nfs ~]# cat /etc/projects 
13:/das/myproject1

[root@linux-nfs ~]# cat /etc/projid 
myproject1:13

[root@linux-nfs ~]# xfs_quota -xc 'report -p' /das
Project quota on /das (/dev/cciss/c0d0)
                               Blocks                     
Project ID       Used       Soft       Hard    Warn/Grace     
---------- -------------------------------------------------- 
myproject1          0          0     102400     00 [--------]

You can see the hard limit set to 1G. But, when i check directory space using df -h command. its showing entire file system space in "Avail" column.

[root@linux-nfs ~]# df -h /das/myproject1/
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/cciss/c0d0       100M     0   13T   0% /das

Is there a way we can restrict showing entire FS size in Avail column (or show available space which is left after using the allocated quota i.e, Avail space = Size - Used) ? This actually cause confusion to end user who things they still have enough space in the directory. 

Thanks in advance

Your kernel is too old to support project quotas showing up properly
in df output.

A current kernel shows:

$ sudo xfs_quota -x -c 'project -s -p /mnt/scratch/foo 42' /mnt/scratch
Setting up project 42 (path /mnt/scratch/foo)...
Processed 1 (/etc/projects and cmdline) paths for project 42 with recursion depth infinite (-1).
$ sudo xfs_quota -x -c 'limit -p bhard=1g 42' /mnt/scratch
$ sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/scratch/foo/bar bs=1024k count=100
100+0 records in
100+0 records out
104857600 bytes (105 MB) copied, 0.133275 s, 787 MB/s
$ sync
$ $ df -h /mnt/scratch /mnt/scratch/foo
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vdb         11G  133M   11G   2% /mnt/scratch
/dev/vdb        1.0G  100M  924M  10% /mnt/scratch

Which is exactly what you are asking for. Solution: upgrade.

Cheers,

Dave.
