Generally, you can set quota limit for inode-softlimit and inode-hardlimit
(you should set it for /tmp filesystem, when you have users on your
inodes in use: 1, limits (soft =512 , hard = 1024),
Then user can not create more than 1024 files or directories, Of course
you can set more restrictive limits. :-)
