Volumes may be mounted anywhere in AFS space, including multiple mount points
(although this is confusing). Disk quotas are applied at the volume level.
The command to check on the current quota status is subcommand
Typically we use:
Two special volumes always exist, and are replicated onto each file server for redundancy.
When a program opens a file, the AFS client must first look up the location of the volume
containing the file, then connect to the appropriate file server. When listing directory contents
containing many volume mount points, many database lookups are needed.
This metadata is cached, but performance can still be slow (e.g.
ls -l /afs/northstar/ufac). Unfortunately GUI file managers love to do this, frequently.
