I have two NFS export in /etc/exports


Is there any easy way to set 50GB quota per export?

  • Yes, setup quotas – lemonsqueeze Oct 9 '14 at 12:52
  • quotas are not set in the exports file. Usually they are managed by the underlying file system. Setting up quotas will depend on your filesystem. – gogators Oct 9 '14 at 12:56

If you don't want to, don't know how or cant use quota stuff - You can create image files on your main storage for each cam.

64GB container ext3 or fat32, choose one.

 dd if=/dev/zero of=cam03.img bs=1M count=64000
 # mkfs ext3 -F cam03.img
 # mkfs fat32 -F cam03.img

Create a mount directory

mkdir /mnt/cam03
chown nobody:nogroup /mnt/cam03

Mount the image

 mount -o loop,rw,sync /mnt/MAIN/CCTV/cam03.img /mnt/cam03

You still have to deal with remounting the image on each boot and making sure NFS remounts too.

My MAIN are 4 2TB disks using ZFS, so I have good redundancy and fast read write. This worked pretty well for me.
