AVBL FTP command

Updated May 3, 2017

Overview

This article describes the use of the Available Bytes in Directory (AVBL) FTP command.

Environment

All Serv-U versions

Detail

The AVBL command is useful when directory size quotas or user quotas are in place on the server. The client can issue this command and use the resulting information to determine whether or not an upload will be accepted by the server. This is particularly useful in the case of very large uploads where the limit may be reached near the end of the upload, effectively wasting the transfer time and bandwidth taken while reaching that limit.
