Setting database size quotas

You can set size quotas for a database or multiple databases. You can also see existing quota information for databases including absolute maximum size, current database size, and any existing quotas or warning thresholds.


  1. From the Domino® Administrator, on the Server pane, select the server that stores the databases for which you want to set quotas. To expand the pane, click the servers icon.
  2. Click the Files tab.
  3. Select the databases you want to set quotas for.
    Tip: Use the Selected databases window to toggle quota information for multiple databases.
  4. In the Tools pane, select Database > Quotas. Or drag the selected databases to the Quotas tool.
  5. For Database size quotas, click Set database quota to x MB and specify a maximum size in megabytes the selected databases can attain.
  6. For Quota warning thresholds, click Set warning threshold to x MB and specify a size in megabytes at which a message appears in the log file (LOG.NSF).
  7. Click OK. When processing is complete, a dialog box indicates how many databases were affected and if any errors occurred. See the status bar for details.
