Over time and with use, a Lustre filesystem will need maintenance. This might mean growing or shrinking the available space, adding quotas, reconfiguring the network topology etc. A great place for advice and help is the Lustre community wiki page. This page collects together experience from users who operate Lustre filesystems in production.
