Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAILBOX-64) Add out-of-the box support for quotas
Date Wed, 21 Jan 2015 09:51:35 GMT

Tellier Benoit commented on MAILBOX-64:

Yes, things exists to manage quotas directly in the mailbox but I do not really like it.

In quota managements, I think they are two kind of value we care about :

  - the current resource values
  - the maximum policies for these values

The fact is that we may want different things :

For instance storing max policies in RAM, in database ( for distributed James ) or even in
a LDAP ( what can be done with Cyrus ). You may want global max policies, per user max policies,
or even no policies at all.

For the current resource value, we may want to update a stored value every time a message
is added to the mailbox, and store it in RAM, or in a database. We may also want to calculate
it each time.

That is why I think we should have 3 APIs :

  - An API to retrieve current values for Quotas
  - An API to retrieve maximum policies for Quotas
  - Nowadays QuotaManager, that simply build quota using these API ...

Of course we need to update things defined in store, and I will update Cassandra's stuff.

I already wrote some code  ( APIs, store, and cassandra ) I just need to write a few tests,
and need an internal review at Linagora before submitting it to you.
