 Linux DiskQuota system   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Periodically (certainly after each unclean reboot, and when quotas are first enabled for a filesystem), the records retained in the quota file should be checked for consistency with the actual number of blocks and files allocated to the user.
The super-user may use the quota (1) command to examine the usage and quotas of any user, and the repquota (8) command may be used to check the usages and limits for all users on a filesystem.
Clients can obtain quota information with the quota command which does a query to the rquotad (8) running on the fileserver from which you mount your NFS disks.

 Maildir++
This quota approach does not use locking, and the tradeoff is that sometimes it is possible for a few extra messages to be delivered to the maildir, before the door is permanently shot.
If a maildir goes over quota, and a mail client that does not support this quota extension removes enough mail from the maildir, the mail delivery agent will not be immediately informed that the maildir is now under quota.
Messages added to a maildir by a mail user agent that does not understand the quota extension will not be immediately counted towards the overall quota, and may not be counted for an extensive period of time.

Quotas can also be assigned on a per-group basis.

 ERS/USDA Briefing Room - WTO: Current Issues
A tariff-rate quota is a quota for a volume of imports at a lower tariff.
The distinction is that under an absolute quota it is legally impossible to import more than 10,000 tons, whereas under a TRQ, imports can exceed 10,000 tons but a higher, over-quota tariff is applied on the excess.
The right to import at the in-quota tariff is allocated to firms on the basis of their trading volume in previous periods.

 Quota and Size Properties for DAV Collections
A client cannot entirely assume that there is no quota enforced on a resource that does not have this property, but might as well act as if there is no quota.
On some systems where quota is counted by collection and not by user, a quota on a sub-collection may be larger than the quota on the parent collection that contains it.
Thus, even when the quota on a parent collection is changed, it is not necessarily required to change the quota on every child or descendant collection.

 Quota mini-HOWTO
Quota allows you to specify limits on two aspects of disk storage: the number of inodes a user or a group of users may possess; and the number of disk blocks that may be allocated to a user or a group of users.
The idea behind quota is that users are forced to stay under their disk consumption limit, taking away their ability to consume unlimited disk space on a system.
Quota is handled on a per user, per file system basis.

This tutorial walks you through implementing disk quotas for both users and groups on Linux, using a virtual filesystem, which is a filesystem created from a disk file.
Since quotas work on a per-filesystem basis, this is a way to implement quotas on a sub-section, or even multiple subsections of your drive, without reformatting.
Again, since quotas are installed on a filesystem, we're going to create an isolated filesystem.
