Unify's schedulers themself  won't implement any Quotas (ie, limits). These
are limits, after crossing which, you will get warnings, critical messages
in log file, so you are aware that all nodes are full, and this is time for
storage upgrade. If extra nodes are not added, it will continue to schedule
file creation within available nodes.

You may want to try 'quota' translator in that case (which is in 1.4.0rc+
releases), which just implements export directory limits. (And this has to
be added just over the posix translator, in server part).
