Currently Invenio lacks an integrated tool to check if is it running out disk space.
This could be implemented as an bibtasklet that could check a configurable list of partitions. Special care must be given to AFS paths (used e.g. at CERN on CDS and INSPIRE), where a different check based on quota must be peformed.
See also the disk space checker (including AFS) from #578. We may want to introduce a new diskutils.py helper library and use it everywhere.
I'm not sure if this is really an Invenio job. I will focus on separating storage backends.
