4.5.3. Keeping Quotas Accurate
If you enable quotas on your file system after a period of time when you have been running with quotas disabled, you should run the
quotacheckcommand to create, check, and repair quota files. Additionally, you may want to run the
quotacheckif you think your quota files may not be accurate, as may occur when a file system is not unmounted cleanly after a system crash.
For more information about the
quotacheckcommand, see the
quotacheckwhen the file system is relatively idle on all nodes because disk activity may affect the computed quota values.
