volume (AFS)


An set of files and folders in AFS.

Under AFS, disk space is broken up into cells and within cells, volumes. MIT supports several cells, the two most familiar being the Athena cell and the sipb cell. Within a cell, space is allocated and managed in terms of something called volumes. The most important thing for the average Athena user to know about a volume is that quota is allocated on a per-volume basis.
