15.5. Setting Timeout

There are two types of timeouts that you can configure for a volume quota:
  • Soft timeout is the frequency at which the quota server-side translator checks the volume usage when the usage is below the soft limit. The soft timeout is in effect when the disk usage is less than the soft limit.
    To set the soft timeout, use the following command:
    # gluster volume quota VOLNAME soft-timeout time

    Note

    The default soft timeout is 60 seconds.
    For example, to set the soft timeout on test-volume to 1 minute:
    # gluster volume quota test-volume soft-timeout 1min
    volume quota : success
  • Hard timeout is the frequency at which the quota server-side translator checks the volume usage when the usage is above the soft limit. The hard timeout is in effect when the disk usage is between the soft limit and the hard limit.
    To set the hard timeout, use the following command:
    # gluster volume quota VOLNAME hard-timeout time

    Note

    The default hard timeout is 5 seconds.
    For example, to set the hard timeout for 30 seconds:
    # gluster volume quota test-volume hard-timeout 30s
    volume quota : success

    Note

    As the margin of error for disk usage is proportional to the workload of the applications running on the volume, ensure that you set the hard-timeout and soft-timeout taking the workload into account.
