ZFS Quota vs. Refquota


Well-Known Member

Currently Proxmox VE only enables us to set QUOTA (space used including snapshots), but in many setups it also makes sense to set REFQUOTA (space used excluding snapshots).

I have deployed znapzend for automatic ZFS snapshoting and replication, but these automatic snapshots are eating up customer space on the ZFS and customers are starting to complain.

Can you please make it possible to set both quota and refquota when managing ZFS storage?
