Describe ZFS' quota feature in the handbook chapter about ZFS FreeBSD
Status: Closed Time to complete: 72 hrs Mentors: PÁLI Gábor János Tags: DocBook, ZFS, documentation, quota, SGML, FreeBSD

Description of task

The FreeBSD operating system supports the ZFS file system, which supports a feature called quota. Basically, quotas can be used to limit users from using up all the disk space when multiple users share the disk space. The basics of zfs quotas need to be explained with some examples and the procedure of activating it must be described in the FreeBSD Handbook for our user community.  Be careful though, there are many different types of quotas (e.g. user quota, group quota) supported for ZFS.  Your task is to document all of them.

Task requires:


A FreeBSD system (in a VirtualBox Virtual Machine) installed on your computer. 
Knowledge of the documentation guidelines for the FreeBSD project: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/fdp-primer/
Make yourself familiar with ZFS using it's manual page (by typing "man zpool" and "man zfs" in a terminal)
Check out a copy of the documentation tree from the documentation repository to get the source code for the chapter
