Hi Leon,

I can let you know that there is a hard limit of 50G per file allowed for any dataset FTP'd and moved into a history. Datasets will exist for 3 days in the user-specific "holding area" before they are automatically purged, if not moved into a history first. While in that holding area, the data are not counted toward or managed by the Galaxy quota system. For more details about exactly how ProFTPd is configured (outside of Galaxy), Nate may be able to jump in with more help if needed. Or maybe you just wanted to double check that the Galaxy quota system was not linked into the initial FTP?


When the time comes, to get started with the Galaxy quota system, you will want to make some adjustments in the universe_wsgi.ini, specifically to this section:

# Enable Galaxy's "Upload via FTP" interface.  You'll need to install and
# configure an FTP server (we've used ProFTPd since it can use Galaxy's
# database for authentication) and set the following two options.

# This should point to a directory containing subdirectories matching users'
# email addresses, where Galaxy will look for files.
#ftp_upload_dir = None

# This should be the hostname of your FTP server, which will be provided to
# users in the help text.
#ftp_upload_site = None

# Enable enforcement of quotas.  Quotas can be set from the Admin interface.
#enable_quotas = False

These instruction have the details for setting up quotas (data after it has been imported into a history as a dataset): http://wiki.g2.bx.psu.edu/Admin/Disk%20Quotas

Hopefully this helps, but please let us know if you need more help.

Best,

Jen

Dear Galaxy team,

We just installed ProFTPd (the same as Galaxy Main) on our Galaxy
server. Now we would like to implement a FTP quota. I am wondering how
Galaxy main handles this. Could you give us some hints? And does the
disk quota counting script include the FTP directory?

Thanks very much,
Leon
