When a user reached the hard quota limit, the "quota" command did not display the remaining grace period (that is, the remaining time before enforcing the limits) in its output. With this update, "quota" always displays the amount of time remaining in the grace period when the user has exceeded or met their hard or soft disk usage limit.

Description Scott McBrien 2002-11-14 16:30:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830 Description of problem: When the hardlimit has been reached by a user, the quota command no longer displays the remaining grace period. When only the soft limit has been exceeded, the quota command performs as expected. If the user, who has reached the hard limit, removes files such that they are still over the soft limit, but not at the hard limit, the grace period returns to the output of quota. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.create a user 2.set hard and soft block quotas for said user 3.create files (maybe with dd?) 4.run quota when the hard block limit has been reached Actual Results: Disk quotas for user frank (uid 2021): Filesystem blocks quota limit grace files quota limit grace /dev/hda1 10240* 8192 10240 2 0 0 Expected Results: Disk quotas for user frank (uid 2021): Filesystem blocks quota limit grace files quota limit grace /dev/hda1 10240* 8192 10240 7days 2 0 0 Additional info:

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable. Some information on which option may be right for you is available at http://www.redhat.com/rhel/migrate/redhatlinux/. Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks. Please check if this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release. If so, please change the product and version to match, and check the box indicating that the requested information has been provided. Note that any bug still open against Red Hat Linux on will be closed as 'CANTFIX' on September 30, 2006. Thanks again for your help.
Comment 3 Scott McBrien 2007-03-09 15:37:56 UTC
Steve, Basically what I'd expect to happen is that even if the hard limit is reached, the quota command run by a user would continue to show their current, remaining grace period. Currently, the grace period is shown if a user is over their soft limit, but when they reach their hard limit the information is not displayed, even though the soft limit grace period is still counting downward. It would make sense to not display the grace period if the user does not have a soft limit set. -Scott

Created attachment 150643 [details] "script" output illustrating problem This transcript on an FC6 system shows the problem.
Comment 5 Wayne Pollock 2007-03-22 20:56:33 UTC
I have confirmed this problem in FC4-FC6 (quota-3.13-126.96.36.199). I have also confirmed that the problem is not present if you build quota from source from http://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxquota (version 3.14). So I assume the official RPM needs to be rebuilt.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
