[howto] check disk usage on Baobab

Have you ever wondered how to quickly check your disk usage on Baobab? You can get disk usage in no time by fetching quota information.

For your data on the home directory and shared folders:

[sagon@login2 ~]$ beegfs-ctl --getquota --uid $USER --cfgFile=/etc/beegfs/home.d/beegfs-client.conf

Quota information for storage pool Default (ID: 1):

      user/group     ||           size          ||    chunk files
     name     |  id  ||    used    |    hard    ||  used   |  hard
--------------|------||------------|------------||---------|---------
       sagon|326945||  186.48 GiB|   unlimited||    45222|unlimited

You can do the same to get the scratch usage:

[sagon@login2 ~]$ beegfs-ctl --getquota --uid $USER --cfgFile=/etc/beegfs/scratch.d/beegfs-client.conf
