Hive Project Storage Quota Update

Filed under: Uncategorized — Michael Weiner @ 9:57 am

In coordination with the Hive PIs, PACE has updated our quota policies for project storage on Hive, in order to facilitate easier access to available storage capacity for our users. For project storage, accessed via the “data” symbolic link in your home directory, block quotas are now shared by an entire research group, rather than being set at the user level. All users in a single PI’s storage allocation have access to the entire quota, which brings Hive in line with Phoenix’s quota arrangement. Most research groups have 50 TB of project storage on Hive, with the exception of those specifically provided with a higher allocation in the NSF grant funding the cluster. Each user maintains a limit of 2 million files within their research group’s project storage.

You can review your storage usage on Hive by running the updated “pace-quota” command on any Hive node. Quotas for home (5 GB per user) and scratch (7 TB per user) directories are unchanged. Please visit our documentation for more details about Hive storage.

Please contact us at with any questions about using Hive.
