FAQ0001 Allocated disk space (quota) is exceeded. What happened?
Each user has a default amount of allowed disk usage on mount point '/scratch' (actual hard limit are 5 TB).
On each login the so-called message-of-the-day prompts the personal status of the quota on /scratch, e.g.
Disk quotas for user xy123ab (uid 12345): Filesystem kbytes quota limit grace files quota limit grace /scratch 1785264656 5261334937 5368709120 - 351193 0 0 -
This report can also be requested by (here TB based amounts)
lfs quota -h -u `id -un` /scratch
In case of exceedance, a login is possible but no more data can be generated on /scratch, i.e. no more jobs can succesfully started/run. Then the user must first reduced the used disk space by transferring data to other storage. For further usage the /home folder or storage in each workgroup should be used. Final archiving can be done by TSM-archive server, please contact hpc-support-team .
