My understanding is databases reside within 'database clusters' in
postgresql. Is this right? Can I run multiple database clusters within
one postgresql/postmaster server? Then could I use filesystem quotas for
each cluster?


Thank you!

Hello,

You could use Filsystem quotas but I strongly suggest against it as it 
will probably bring about database corruption.

A better solution would be to monitor the space being allocated so you
can add storage as required.

Sincerely,
