What is Disk Space Concept and how it is related to Individual Resource Quotas and summary disk usage ?
Plz. tell me
Your account allows you to host your website, store incoming and outgoing mail, create and manage databases. These tasks require disk space on the hosting servers provided to you through individual resource quotas. Your account’s plan may be, also, configured with summary disk usage to control disk space usage on an overall basis for all your disk space consumig resources combined together.
Individual Resource Quotas
Quotas are set separately for your home directory, each mailbox and DB and define how many MB you can store in it. You can’t upload and store more MB than the resource’s quota allows (except for MySQL DBs and PgSQL DBs) and will get an error message if you try to do so. Every 5 minutes the system scans your home FTP directory, mailboxes and DBs to see how much disk space is being used and updates the corresponding quota usage readings, so you can always check how many MB are being used by the resource and how many more MB can be uploaded.
To upload more MB than the resource’s quota allows, you can increase it.
Learn how to increase quota for:
* your home directory
* MySQL DB
* PgSQL DB
* MS SQL DB
Resources’ quotas can be max restricted which means you won’t be able to increase it any higher when this limit is reached. To check how much you can increase your quotas to, go to Billing -> Online price and check the Max field in the quota’s entry.
Summary Disk Usage
Average and Last Day Summary Disk Usage
Every 24 hours the system scans your FTP home directory, each of your mailboxes and DBs to summarize disk space used by these resources which makes summary disk usage for the last day. Summary readings of each daily scan are added up and divided by days elapsed from the beginning of the billing month to make your average summary disk usage. If your hosting plan is configured with the summary disk usage resource, you will see both figures on your Account -> Quick Access page:
