View NFS quota limits from guest

Is it possible to view the quota limits from a Guest OS (Linux/ESX)

Basically I am presented storage that my OS (Linux/ESX) sees as 240 Gigs, but the NFS Server actually has a quota at 180 Gigs.  I have no control or access to the NFS Server (Some EMC Device), but I want to know when I get close to filling my space.

I had all the VM's in one LUN go down today because I thought I had 240 Gigs but didn't.

The device you are referring to is probably an EMC Celerra. Regarding filling up your disk space, did you keep in mind that the space a VM consumes consists of your VMDK (your drives), the vswp-files (virtual Swap) and some logs.

It could very well be that your server was full @ 180GB because the rest was filled with the vswp-files for all your VM's?

Besides that there is no real option of checking quota's on an NFS file system from ESX. It's COS lacks the required binaries to do so. Checking quota's is normally done by issuing the "quota"-command.

Thanks for the information.

FYI I was told that there was an 180 GB Quota on my storage.
