Dirsize quota

The dirsize quota backend supports storage quota limits, but not messages quota limits. The current quota is calculated by finding all files in configured mail directories and summing up their sizes. This works pretty fast with mboxes, but dirsize is a really bad idea with maildirs. It will end up eating all your CPU and disk I/O.


plugin {
  # 10MB quota limit
  quota = dirsize:User quota
  quota_rule = *:storage=10M

None: Quota/Dirsize (last edited 2010-06-15 17:13:02 by TimoSirainen)
