Enable quotas on Virtuozzo – How to do it?

by | Nov 22, 2021

Wondering how to enable quotas on Virtuozzo? We can help you.

As part of our Server Management Services, we assist our customers with several Virtuzzo queries.

Today, let us see how we can enable quotas for the same.


Enable quotas on Virtuozzo

In the case of a Virtuozzo 7 VPS, we need to enable quotas in this environment. This is due to the nature of Virtuozzo quota types.

Now, let us see what a container is.

The container is a spun-up virtualized instance. We will host the website, emails, databases, and other various web hosting information in this instance. It is going to be the virtual server.

Moving ahead, let us see the steps our Support Techs employ to perform the same.

  • Find the Container UUID

Initially, we need to find the container UUID. To do so, we run the following command:

# prlctl list -a
UUID                                   STATUS  IP_ADDR     T  NAME
{600adc12-0e39-41b3-bf05-c59b7d26dd73} running CT MyCT
{b2de86d9-6539-4ccc-9120-928b33ed31b9} stopped VM MyVM

From the results above, we can see that the first entry is in bold. This is the UUID, which is the Container_ID.

  • Enable Quotas

Once done with the steps above, we proceed with the following steps:

1. Initially, we set the QUOTAUGIDLIMIT parameter to a value that is greater than zero.

2. We run the following command to enable quotas, where UUID represents the container ID of the container that we wish to enable quotas on.

prlctl set <UUID> --quotaugidlimit 1

3. Finally, we restart the Container.

prlctl restart UUID
