How to calculate space quota for erasure coded directory?

 
1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

The jira proposes 10+4 ( 10 data blocks with 4 additional blocks for the RAID ) which would be roughly 40% overhead. But I think I have seen 6+3 as well somewhere. In both cases you should be able to roughly count with 50% overhead. But as Neeraj says we will have to wait to see final figures.

@ssathish This is a good question and I believe we need to wait for the final docs to come out with more information.

6+3 worked for me. Thanks!
