Previously, it was not possible to have more than 7712 limits configured for a volume due to limitations on how the quota.conf file was read and written. With this fix, you can now configure more than 65000 limits on a single volume.

How reproducible:
When 7711 or more quotas are registered, the following error occurs.

"quota.conf corrupted"

Additional info:

Line 927

COMMIT: committed in master by  

------------- quota: fixes issue in quota.conf when setting large number of limits

Problem: It was not possible to configure more than 7712 quota limits.
This was because a stack buffer of size 131072 was used to read from
quota.conf file. In the new format of quota.conf file each gfid entry
takes 17bytes (16byte gfid + 1 byte type). So, the buf_size was not a
multiple of gfid entry size and as per code this was considered as

Solution: make buf size multiple of gfid entry size

Comment 4 Vinayak Papnoi 2018-03-13 07:36:16 UTC
Build : glusterfs-3.12.2-5.el7rhgs.x86_64

Quota limits more than 7711 are now possible to set on a volume.

[root@dhcp42-68 ~]# time gluster v quota distrep list | wc -l

real	1m28.938s
user	0m8.801s
sys	0m3.117s
[root@dhcp42-68 ~]#

As seen above , 8197 quota limits are set on the volume.

Hence, moving bug to VERIFIED.
