Ming Ma commented on HDFS-8898:
-------------------------------

[~aw], HDFS-3000 provides quota write, this jira is to provide quota read.

Thanks [~kihwal] and [~vinayrpet]!

> On large directory structures it takes significant time to iterate through the file and
directory counts recursively to get a complete ContentSummary.
> When you want to just check for the quota on a higher level directory it would be good
to have an option to skip the file and directory counts.
> Moreover, currently one can only check the quota if you have access to all the directories
underneath. For example, if I have a large home directory under /user/joep and I host some
files for another user in a sub-directory, the moment they create an unreadable sub-directory
under my home I can no longer check what my quota is. Understood that I cannot check the current
file counts unless I can iterate through all the usage, but for administrative purposes it
is nice to be able to get the current quota setting on a directory without the need to iterate
through and run into permission issues on sub-directories.
