Quotas are limits defined in OpenStack to ensure that the system resources and capacity are used in a systematic manner. Different users can be given different quota limits based on their requirement and priority. In this recipe, we will show you how to configure a quota related to networking at a project level and for the whole system.
The setting up and enforcement of the quota are done at the project level. If any user in the project tries to exceed the allotted quota, the system will reject the corresponding request. To configure the quota-related parameters, you need to have a good idea about the capacity, scale, and performance requirements of your OpenStack-based cloud.
