Hi,

I have been trying out using 'parent' as a value for Fairshare and
'sshare -a' shows me the following:

             Account       User  RawShares  NormShares    RawUsage  EffectvUsage  FairShare 
-------------------- ---------- ---------- ----------- ----------- ------------- ---------- 
root                                          1.000000  1796297438      1.000000   0.500000 
 root                      root          1    0.002252           0      0.000000   1.000000 
 ...
 dept01                             parent    1.000000           0      0.000000   1.000000 
  group01                           parent    1.000000           0      0.000000   1.000000 
   group01               user01     parent    1.000000           0      0.000000   1.000000 
   group01               user02     parent    1.000000           0      0.000000   1.000000 

On the one hand it makes sense that the individual users have the same
NormShares as their parent and grandparent, but on the other it
contradicts my understanding of NormShares, which is the fraction of the
total shares that an account or user has.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Cheers,

Loris
