SharePoint 2016 Central Admin – Application Management – Specify Quota Templates

When you click on the Specify Quota Templates Link, you will be landed on Quota Template page. This page will let you create a new quota template, edit the existing quota template and delete a quota template.

In SharePoint, you have an option where you can control how much space & resources a site collection can use. Using storage quota option, you can set the how much data a site collection store. You can decide how much space a site collection use, and what level a site collection will get the warning alerts. When site collection reach to its quota then SharePoint put the read lock on the site collection.

You can set the quota on each site collection manually but If you have too many site collections in farm, then it is really hard to managing the induvial quota. To solve this issue, SharePoint provide an option called Quota template. You create template once then assign that template to all site collection at the time of creation or you can assign it even after creation.

If you have sandbox solution in your farm, then you can control the resource usage on those sandbox solutions. In quota template, you can specify the points (as measuring number for resources), default is 300 points. A point is a relative measurement of resource usage, for example, CPU cycles, memory, or page faults.

It is highly recommended to control your environment using the quota that’s you make sure one site collection is not using all the available storage space and resources than other sites facing the issues.
