    [Solved] Limiting total disk space per virtual server and total traffic

    I've watched the YouTube video's for ATHP's and want to follow the proposed suggestion to offer different TeamSpeak packages (with and without file sharing).

    However, I find myself with a pretty big problem and that is limiting the total amount of disk space being used per virtual server. I cannot seem to find a setting to limit this. For example, if I want to provide a package with 250 MB total disk space and 10 GB traffic per month, I cannot do this from within TeamSpeak.

    I would like to suggest to make a total traffic limit setting. For example limiting the cumulative upload and download traffic to X GB per month. And also create a setting for the maximum amount of disk space a virtual server can use at any given time.

    Is such a feature / setting in the making?

    But why not? It is very important for Hosters!

    1500 Servers, every Server use 500 MB Space, 750 GB HDD ! I think that there must be a resolution!

    Sure you can.
    Do not disable Bandwith but disable the Quotas by set it to 0

    Okay thank you but in the TeamSpeak 3 Podcast for ATHPs (part 2 of 2) Video they talk about Hosting plans. Example:

    1 GB Space, 100 GB File Transfer per mo.

    But how can i control the 1 GB Space? The 100 GB File transfer can i set with the down/upload quota.. i know.

    external programs will make the trick
    i am not sure, but I think "monit" should be able to do so for example...

    Quota

    As for you guys asking for a quota system.

    - doing quota in an application is always a quirk and not reliable. What happens if you put in (or delete) a file manually on the serve? Well, one could recalculate it every day or so, but on a filesystem with many many files this takes ages.

    So, it's always better to leave this to the OperatingSystem, well to be precise, to the FileSystem of the OS.

    If you're planning on using a Windows based server, you're in luck, as there you have the best possible solution: "Directory Quota"

    There you can set, with a nifty GUI or via command line, a quota to a directory (e.g. [ts3_serverdir]/files/virtualserver_1)
    All files that go in or our of this directory will be counted immediatly and as you can also set a warning (soft) limit with built in email notification, it's also easy to alert your customers abouth reaching the limit of their disk space.



    On Linux it might be a bit more complicated, as you can just use user/group based quotas.
    A workaround would be, to remount the ts3 virtualserver directorys as independant/virtual partitions and limit the diskspace this way.
