NAME

       fs_setvol - Set quota and messages for a volume containing a file or directory

SYNOPSIS

       fs setvol [-path <dir/file path>+]
           [-max <disk space quota in 1K units>]
           [-offlinemsg <offline message>] [-help]

       fs setv [-p <dir/file path>+]
           [-ma <disk space quota in 1K units>]
           [-o <offline message>] [-h]

       fs sv [-p <dir/file path>+]
           [-ma <disk space quota in 1K units>]
           [-o <offline message>] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The fs setvol command sets the quota (maximum possible size) of the read/write volume that
       contains each directory or file named by the -path argument. To associate a message with
       the volume which then appears in the output of the fs examine command, include the
       -offlinemsg argument.

       To display all of the settings made with this command, use the fs examine command. The fs
       listquota command reports a fileset's quota, and the fs quota command the percent of quota
       used.

       To set quota on one volume at a time, use the fs setquota command.

CAUTIONS

       Currently, the maximum quota for a volume is 2 terabytes (2^41 bytes). Note that this only
       affects the volume's quota; a volume may grow much larger if the volume quota is disabled.
       However, volumes over 2 terabytes in size may be impractical to move, and may have their
       size incorrectly reported by some tools, such as fs_listquota(1).

OPTIONS

       -path <dir/file path>+
           Names each file or directory for which to set the host volume's quota and offline
           message. 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/.example.com). For further discussion of the concept of
           read/write and read-only paths through the filespace, see the fs mkmount reference
           page.

       -max <disk space quota in 1K units>
           Sets the maximum amount of file server disk space the volume can occupy. Provide a
           positive integer to indicate the number of one-kilobyte blocks (1024 is one megabyte).
           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 (so that the command sets the quota of the volume
           housing the current working directory), the -max switch must be provided.

       -offlinemsg
           Associates a message with the volume which then appears in the output of the fs
           examine command. Its intended use is to explain why the volume is currently offline.

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

EXAMPLES

       The following command imposes a 6500 kilobyte quota on the volumes mounted at the home
       directories /afs/example.com/usr/smith and /afs/example.com/usr/pat:

          % cd /afs/example.com/usr
          % fs setvol -path smith pat -max 6500B<>

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

       The issuer must belong to the system:administrators group.
