Disk space[edit]

New accounts have a default quota of 256MB. Quota usage can be checked using the following command:

$ quota -v

To request a higher quota, file a ticket in JIRA.


Long-running queries will be given a warning if they don't include /* SLOW_OK */ in a comment in the query.

On the fast servers, queries longer than 1 minute will be killed.

On the non-fast servers, very long queries can be killed manually by roots if the queries are harming replag or causing other issues. Slowly


On the Solaris machines, a long-running process using a lot of CPU will be automatically added to the batch something.
