FAQ: What happens when I exceed the allocated storage space?


The answer depends on the type of storage being used.

Home Directory: 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

HDFS storage: For your HDFS space, you will receive the following exception org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.protocol.DSQuotaExceededException when running your programs or while using the hadoop utilities. For example:
   The !DiskSpace quota of /user/testuser is exceeded:
     quota=1048576 diskspace consumed=192.2m

In order to remedy this situation, please proceed to remove unnecessary and/or unwanted files.

Note: if you have a good reason to use more storage space, please contact an admin to increase your quota.
