Resource Limits for COSC Undergraduates

In general, resource limits are enforced by providing a quota or by charging students.

CSSE Linux Accounts

The following resources are limited in some way:

  • Disk space:
    Each account has a disk space quota that cannot be exceeded. Linux users can use the command:
    `quota -v'
    or in the file browser, right click select properties to get a summary. Once an account's quota is exhausted, or the disk containing an account's files fills up, files must be deleted before work can continue.
  • Printing:
    Printing to CSSE printers is charged to each student's ICTS account at their standard rates (a sheet printed on both sides is charged as two pages). A separate document gives details on how to print various types of files on CSSE Linux accounts.
