Some Terms in quota


Hard Block Limit - The absolute maximum amount of disk space that a user or group can use. Once this limit is reached, no further disk space can be used.

Soft Block Limit -  the maximum amount of disk space that can be used. However, unlike the hard limit, the soft limit can be exceeded for a certain amount of time. That period is called Grace Period.

Grace Period – It can be expressed in seconds, minutes, hours,
      days, weeks, or months.

     If any of the values are set to 0, that limit is not set.
