Re: [Linux-cluster] how to confirm GFS quotas are disabled

According to this document:
you can get a 5% performance increase by disabling quotas on GFS.

(I am not taking this as gospel, but every couple of percentage points helps)

According to the GFS manual
you do this using the following syntax:

gfs_tool settune /mnt/gfs quota_account 0

How do I confirm that quotas have been disabled?
An indirect (to me) way is to run 'gfs_quota list -f /mnt/gfs' and check if the values in the last field change or not. Nothing in the output of 'gfs_tool quota /mnt/gfs' jumped out at me to say if it is enabled or not

I was hoping there is a more elegant way to check this.

Hi Riaan,

I think you want:
gfs_tool gettune /mnt/gfs1/ | grep quota_enforce
where /mnt/gfs1/ is your mounted gfs fs, but I haven't actually verified it in the code...
