Hi Lala,

Thank you. I should have been more clear and you are correct, I can't write
data above the quota. I was referring only to the listing of "disk size" in
windows/samba land.

Thanks for the tip in quota-deem-statfs. Here are my results with that
# gluster volume set gfsv0 quota-deem-statfs on
volume set: failed: option : quota-deem-statfs does not exist
Did you mean dump-fd-stats or quota-timeout?

Which Gluster version does that feature setting apply to?
