Disk Quotas

Disk Quotas

Does any know how I can scan a volume on a Novell File Server that will return the quota set on a per user basis and  also get the following information?
Quota set On or Off
Space Used
Space Free
Date the files were created
Date Last Accessed

Any Help would be really appreciated

Login as root/ ubersuperuser/ sysadmin/ bigcheese, and use the system administration tools?

but if it were that easy I wouldn't have posted a thread here would I?

RE: Disk Quotas


Well, when I did a google (verb) on "Novel disk server" one of the first hits was:


Since they say in the url "shareware" I'm assuming that it's free.  The abstract on the app says:

"Scan for and store daily network file statistics such as creator, deletor, archiver, creation date, deletion date, last access date, last archived date, etc. Tally important file statistics for specific directories such as # modified files, # new files, # deleted files, and # archived files. Learn of deleted and new directories. Find problem users in the blink of an eye! Build informative queries and graphs on the data you've collected."

I was just curious myself.  Not going to go to Novel, but wante to know a little more.  I'm a 'nix guy and quotas have been around since just about the beginning (goshdarn students!).  

Haven't done much with quotas since certification for me.  Nowadays, the price of disk space is so cheap.

Anyway, hope the link helps. I haven't used nor researched it.  Best of luck!

Rich, FYI... shareware typically means paid programs available in the public domain (though for a usually reasonable fee).  Freeware is what the name implies...
