SharePoint2010 Quota Template Feature Powered By Docstoc
					What is a SharePoint Server 2010 Quota Template? A SharePoint Server 2010 quota
template consists of storage limit values that specify the maximum amount of data
that can be stored in a site collection. When the storage limit is reached, a quota
template can also trigger an e-mail alert to the site collection administrator. You can
create a quota template that can be applied to any site collection in the farm. A quota
template can also be applied to a site collection that contains sandboxed solutions.
You can limit the maximum usage per day and send a warning e-mail message when
the usage limit is approaching. If the maximum usage limit is reached, the sandboxed
solution is disabled for the rest of the day, and an e-mail message is sent to the site
collection administrator. You can also modify existing quota templates. This allows
you to modify storage limits for all of the site collections that use the same quota
template. When you modify a quota template, you must then reapply it to existing site
collections before the new storage limits are enforced. You can delete a quota
template if necessary. However, deleting a quota template will not delete quota values
from sites that were created by using the quota template. If you want to remove quotas
from all sites by using a specific quota template, you must use the object model or
perform a SQL query. Even SharePoint Foundation has the advantage of this feature
using which it controls the amount of storage used by site collections and the
resources consumed by user code solutions with improved Quota Templates. How to

you want to apply to the template. If you want to restrict how much data that can be
stored, click the Limit site storage to a maximum of check box and type the storage
limit in megabytes into the box. If you want an e-mail message to be sent to the site
collection administrator when a certain storage threshold is reached, click the Send
warning E-mail when Site Collection storage reaches check box and type the
threshold in megabytes into the box. 7. In the Sandboxed Solutions with Code Limits
section, set the values for a template for sandboxed solutions. In the Limit maximum
usage per day to box, type the daily usage in points. In the Send warning e-mail when
