FAQ: What happens when I exceed the allocated storage space?
The answer depends on the type of storage being used.
: For yourhome directory space, you will observe the following error message.
writing `...': Disk quota exceeded
. For example:
dd: writing `/h/testuser/testfile': Disk quota exceeded
: For your HDFS space, you will receive the following exception
when running your programs or while using the hadoop utilities. For example:
The !DiskSpace quota of /user/testuser is exceeded:

In order to remedy this situation, please proceed to remove unnecessary and/or unwanted files.
if you have a good reason to use more storage space, please contact an admin to increase your quota.
