    I assume the mysterious 'other usage' for a user is just the difference between /sbin/quota $user and du ~ user, yes?

    if so, quotas under OpenVZ/proxmox 3.4 are broken.

    I'm running on proxmox ve 3.4 for this openvz container and I have secondary quota option turned on. I can fix quotas by shutting down the container, clearing out the quota files and letting OpenVZ retally diskusage for the entire server, then run /scripts/fixquota but that's not very sustainable.

    I use

    # vzctl stop $CTID; vzquota off $CTID; vzquota drop $CTID; vzquota on $CTID -s 1; rm /var/lib/vz/private/$CTID/aquota.*; vzctl restart $CTID; vzctl enter $CTID

    inside the container I then /scripts/fixquotas.

    which fixes it, for now (and also fixes general quota issues).
    • CENTOS 5.8 x86_64 virtuozzo
    • WHM 56.0 (build 41)[/URL]

    In /etc/vz/*.conf I have

    # Disk quota parameters (in form of softlimit:hardlimit)
    DISKSPACE="104857600:115343360"
    DISKINODES="20000000:22000000"
    QUOTATIME="0"
    QUOTAUGIDLIMIT="5000".

    And on the container

    #mount
    /dev/simfs on / type simfs (rw,relatime,usrquota,grpquota)
    proc on /proc type proc (rw,relatime)
    sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,relatime)
    none on /dev type tmpfs (rw,relatime,mode=755)
    devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,relatime,gid=5,mode=620,ptmxmode=000)
    tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,relatime)
    none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw,relatime)

    so usrquota and grpquota are enabled. And yet quota does not work for users and shows extra usage or missing usage constantly.

    (Just created a 1gb file in user's homedir, it was not tallied to his account under quota $user)
