The organization admin can set a quota on a directory. Setting a quota will start the process of counting the current directory usage. Until this process is done, the quota will not be taken into account (for empty directories, this process is instantly done).

Note: Currently, a mount point to the relevant filesystem is required to set a quota on a directory, and the quota set command should not be interrupted until the quota accounting is over.

The organization admin sets quotas to inform/restrict users from using too much of the filesystem capacity. For that, only data in the user's control is taken into account. Hence, the quota doesn't count the overhead of the protection bits and snapshots. It does take into account data&metadata of files in the directory, regardless if tiered or not.
