Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8479) update HDFS quotas guide: currently says setting quota fails if the directory would be in violation of the new quota
Date Mon, 04 Jun 2012 20:38:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8479?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13288884#comment-13288884

Aaron T. Myers commented on HADOOP-8479:
----------------------------------------

I'm happy to be convinced otherwise, but presently I'm of the opinion that this seems like
an error in the docs. Setting a quota is an administrative command, so if an administrator
notices a user directory that's using too much space, they might want to set a quota on it
which would then force the user to later clean up that dir as they see fit. I don't think
the administrator should be required to clean up the dir before being able to set the quota.

> The guide says "The attempt to set a quota fails if the directory would be in violation
of the new quota" for both Name Quotas and Space Quotas.
> That doesn't seem to be the case, though. I can set the quota successfully even when
the directory violates the new quota.
