So, this is software from external vendor, there is another option which is file storage resources manager from Netapp. any thoughts on Netapp product?

Read the doc:

"This guide walks you through quota setup from native Data ONTAP and from NTP Software QFS for NAS, NetApp Edition."

Chapters 1-5 are only about inbuilt NetApp filer capabilities.

Sorry, what version?? Isn't it the time to think about some upgrade?

Seriously though - this doc gives a thorough explanation about quotas:

http://media.netapp.com/documents/tr-3425.pdf

I just whizzed through this & it looks like most of the content should be applicable to 6.2 as only few bits are marked as requiring 6.5 or later.
