we have a quota node with a large number of files (>25M).
We are unable to recalculate the quota, apparently the time for recompute
exceeds the internal timer in the EOS.
time -p eos -b ns recompute_quotanode /eos/baikalgvd/
error: errc=52 msg="[ERROR] Operation expired"
Is there an option to increase the timer?
Despite the error, the operation will finish in the background. This is just the client giving up on receiving a response from the server, but the server will recompute the quota node regardless.
To increase the timeout, setting environment variables
XRD_REQUESTTIMEOUT=3600 should do the trick.
with those environment variables it finished OK.
