Checking the Storage Space Used on the Server

Checking from the Client

If you're using the client machine, bbackupquery can tell you how much space is used on the server for this account.

Either use the usage command in interactive mode, or use the following command:

/usr/local/sbin/bbackupquery -q usage quit

This will show the space used as a single command.

Checking from the Server

If you're using the server machine, bbstoreaccounts allows you to query the space used, and change the limits. To display the space used on the server for an account, use the following command:

/usr/local/sbin/bbstoreaccounts info 75AB23C

To adjust the soft and hard limits on an account, use the following command:

/usr/local/sbin/bbstoreaccounts setlimit 75AB23C new-soft-limit new-hard-limit


/usr/local/sbin/bbstoreaccounts setlimit 75AB23C 20G 30G

You do not need to restart the server. Use B for blocks, M for Mb, G for Gb for the new limit.
