Disk Space Usage Settings

Disk usage settings restrict the amount of disk space set for various entities (logs, folders, databases, etc.) within a subscription.

To get these settings from Plesk database, send the get packet and receive the response. The returned disk_usage node has no data type, it is nested within the data node (described in plesk_domain.xsd) and has the following structure.

  • The httpdocs node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by the /httpdocs directory. Data type: long.
  • The httpsdocs node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by the /httpsdocs directory. Data type: long.
  • The subdomains node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by subdomains on this subscription. Data type: long.
  • The web_users node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) allotted for web users on the subscription. Data type: long.
  • The anonftp node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by anonymous FTP. Data type: long.
  • The logs node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by logs. Data type: long.
  • The dbases node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by databases created. Data type: long. Makes sense for Plesk for UNIX only.
  • The mysql_dbases node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by MySQL databases created. Data type: integer. Makes sense for Plesk for Windows only.
  • The mssql_dbases node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by MSSQL databases created. Data type: integer. Makes sense for Plesk for Windows only.
  • The mailboxes node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) allotted by mailboxes. Data type: long.
  • The webapps node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by Tomcat web applications deployed. Data type: long.
  • The maillists node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by mailing lists. Data type: long.
  • The domaindumps node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by dumps. Data type: long.
  • The configs node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by configuration files. Data type: long. Makes sense for Plesk for UNIX only.
  • The chroot node is required. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by the /chroot directory. Data type: long. Makes sense for Plesk for UNIX only.

Most of these settings cannot be set up directly. You can set only two of them: mailboxes and maillists. The disk_usage node of the set request packet does not have its own data type and is structured as follows:

  • The mailboxes node is optional. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) allotted by mailboxes per subscription. Data type: long.
  • The maillists node is optional. Specifies the amount of disk space (in bytes) occupied by mailing lists created per subscription. Data type: long.

 

The following set request packet sets the limits on the hard disk space for email boxes and mailing lists:

<packet version="1.6.3.0">
<webspace>
<set>
   <filter>
      <id>123</id>
      <id>124</id>
   </filter>
   <values>
      <disk_usage>
          <mailboxes>1073741824</mailboxes>
          <maillists>1048576</maillists>
      </disk_usage>
   </values>
</set>
</webspace>
</packet>

The following get response packet returns the disk usage information for the specified subscription:

<packet version="1.6.3.0">
<webspace>
<get>
   <result>
      <status>ok</status>
      <filter-id>2435</filter-id>
      <id>2435</id>
      <data>
          <disk_usage>
             <httpdocs>2097152</httpdocs>
             <httpsdocs>1572864</httpsdocs>
             <subdomains>12582945</subdomains>
             <web_users>130023456</web_users>
             <anonftp>12582975</anonftp>
             <logs>4194312</logs>
             <dbases>4194325</dbases>
             <mailboxes>12582978</mailboxes>
             <webapps>3145728</webapps>
             <maillists>1048523</maillists>
             <domaindumps>209715200</domaindumps>
             <configs>25078</configs>
             <chroot>2095647</chroot>
          </disk_usage>
      </data>
   </result>
</get>
/<webspace>
</packet>
