Limit the number of files or folders created by users in HDFS

Contributor

Hello,

I have started doing a self learning to get deeper into Hadoop, for this during my studies had a quick question raised:

Is it possible to limit the number of files or folders users can create in HDFS? 

Please excuse if it is a very basic question, however, me being a newbie got this question and also please guide if it is posted in incorrect community.

Thanks
