Automatically setting quotaugidlimit

From OpenVZ Linux Containers Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

If you are using second-level user/group quota with simfs for your containers, you have to take care that the value at every moment is high enough. Otherwise, newly created users and groups within the CT won't be able to own files. Note this is not required for ploop layout, in which quotaugidlimit is enabled with any non-zero value.

Rather than checking these values from time to time by hand, you can use the shell script from below to automatically set the quotaugidlimit based on the needs of the individual containers. Just setup a cronjob for it.

Script

#!/bin/bash

# If one of these files does not exist then something
# is really broken
[ -d /etc/vz/conf ] || exit 1

# get all configured VEs
FILES=/etc/vz/conf/*.conf

# loop through all VEs
for file in $FILES
do
	STRING=""
	VALUE=""
	INT=""
	CONFFILE=""
	VEID=""
	USERC=""
	GROUPC=""
	TOTAL=""

	# source the config file
	. $file

	# check if quotaugidlimit is set
	if grep -q "QUOTAUGIDLIMIT" $file
	then
		# get current quotaugidlimit
		STRING=`grep "QUOTAUGIDLIMIT" $file`
		VALUE=${STRING##*QUOTAUGIDLIMIT=\"}
		INT=${VALUE%?}

		# check if quotaugidlimit is > 0
		if [ ! $INT == 0 ];
		then
			# get configfile name
			CONFFILE=`basename $file`
			VEID=${CONFFILE%.*}

			# run commands "inside" the VE
			USERC=`cat $VE_PRIVATE$VEID/etc/passwd | wc -l`
			GROUPC=`cat $VE_PRIVATE$VEID/etc/group | wc -l`
			TOTAL=$(($USERC + $GROUPC + 15))

			# only change if current value is lower
			if [ $TOTAL -gt $INT ];
			then
				# set the new quotaugidlimit for container
				vzctl set $VEID --quotaugidlimit $TOTAL --save
				echo "New quotaugidlimit set to $TOTAL for VEID $VEID\n"
			fi
		fi
	fi
done

This will check for current users/groups count and increate the value by 15 - and set it as a new limit for the container.
