As an administrator, understand the Storage space level and Namespace quota that you can define and manage for the volumes and buckets .

To use the quota feature, you must be an administrator.

Storage Space level quota

  • Volume storage space quota: Defines the overall space usage limit for the buckets under a volume.
  • Bucket storage space quota: Defines the maximum space usage limit by keys and files recursively under a bucket.

Namespace quota

  • Volume namespace quota: Defines the number of buckets which can be present in a volume.

  • Bucket namespace quota: The namespace quota for the bucket is the number of files or keys or directories inside the bucket recursively.
