View Block Storage quotas

Administrative users can view Block Storage service quotas.

  1. Obtain the project ID:

    $ PROJECT_ID=$(openstack project show -f value -c id PROJECT_NAME)
    
  2. List the default quotas for a project:

    $ openstack quota show --default $PROJECT_ID

Note

Listing default quotas with the OpenStack command line client will provide all quotas for storage and network services. Previously, the cinder quota-defaults command would list only storage quotas. You can use $PROJECT_ID or $PROJECT_NAME arguments to show Block Storage service quotas. If the $PROJECT_ID argument returns errors in locating resources, use $PROJECT_NAME.

Edit and update Block Storage service quotas

Administrative users can edit and update Block Storage service quotas.

  1. To update a default value for a new project, update the property in the cinder.quota section of the /etc/cinder/cinder.conf file. For more information, see the Block Storage service in OpenStack Configuration Reference.

  2. To update Block Storage service quotas for an existing project

    $ openstack quota set --QUOTA_NAME QUOTA_VALUE PROJECT_ID
    

    Replace QUOTA_NAME with the quota that is to be updated, QUOTA_VALUE with the required new value. Use the openstack quota show command with PROJECT_ID, which is the required project ID.

    For example:

    $ openstack quota set --volumes 15 $PROJECT_ID
    $ openstack quota show $PROJECT_ID
