Description

a year ago
I am storing screenshots for L10N in my ~public_html on people.mozilla.org.

I am currently running into quota errors, which is preventing me from sharing screenshots easily.

My request is to at least double my disk space quota there so that I have more room.

I am also happy to move these to a better place, but p.m.o has been extremely low friction for us. We simply rsync a folder and then share the URL with our L10N QA audience. Simpler is better.
I'll ask the devil's advocate question here. The next time people is rebooted for its biannual 2-hour long fsck.ext, how much work stoppage will we incur due to these screenshots being unavailable?

Long-term:  :atoll asks a good meta-question.  people isn't HA; you should consider hooking up with cloudops and getting an S3 bucket / something like s3sync for your process.

Short term: I took a quick peek for due-diligence; most of your space is being taken by fxios/screenshots, where there are screenshots coming up on a year old and a combination of directories and tarballs-of-those-directories.  Is there any age-related cleanup/consolidation that would make this request unnecessary?

If not, we'll get you bumped.  Just let me know.
(s3sync, or aws sync, or s3cmd sync, or any of that ilk: they all implement simplistic, one-liner rsync commands that correlate local<->remote for you)

Thanks for the Clean Your Dishes message Greg :-) I did indeed get rid of a bunch of old screenshots and I seem to have enough wiggle room now. I think this is good for now and I will work on a plan to move these to s3.

Is it possible to find out what my quota is?

Disk quotas aren't enabled on people, I've never tested it but my understanding is that you could fill the disk if you really wanted to. I'm curious: what the exact error you saw? Do you still have that in terminal scroll back?

Cool, will close this out.  Thanks for the cleanup.  If it turns out you need more before you can transition away, feel free to come back or reopen.

You're at the default, 10GB in /home.

Just to correct myself - I learned this is done on the filer, not the local system. Thanks Greg!
