The extensions provides a backend module to get an overview of the quotas for the storages as well as a Symfony command that may be used as Scheduler task to update quota statistics also.
Overview of Storage with Quota¶
If quota limits have been configured for some of your storages, the backend module of FAL Quota shows those quota settings in the list view but without the Scheduler task (or a manual update via CLI) without the current storage utilization :
As soon as you run the CLI task/Scheduler task the utilization will be updated and Current Storage taken  will show the space in use. Storage record rows ar marked with a yellow background if the threshold is reached or with a red background if the quota limit has been reached/exceeded.
Quotas may exceed their soft quota limit (100%) if files are added to the storage by S/FTP or directly in the file system. The scheduler task may then be used to regularly update quota statistics and send the email notifications.
Scheduler Task to update Quota Statistics¶
To create a task for a recurring update of the quota statistics and to automatically send notification mails go to SYSTEM > Scheduler > Scheduled tasks and click on the plus sign to add a task. Choose Execute console commands from the Class list . Click on the option list for Schedulable Command. Save and reopen to define command arguments and select the Symfony command fal_quota:quota:update: Update Quota Statistics for storages from the list .
Quota statistics of a storage is automatically updated with every action executed within the storage, the Scheduler task is mainly used to send notifications and sync external updates of the storage assets (e.g. files added by S/FTP). Set the execution interval according to your requirements.
Manually update Quota Statistics¶
The task can also be manually executed on the command line using the TYPO3 CLI:
You can optionally specify the UID of a storage to update a single storage record:
./public/typo3/sysext/core/bin/typo3 fal_quota:quota:update 1
The email notifications is currently very basic and just sends an informal mail about the storage reaching quota limits.
