admin() and task() Argument Size Specifications

By default, the units for arguments specifying sizes in admin() and task() functions are kilobytes. You can specify other units.

You can use the following units in size arguments to the admin() and task() functions:

Notation
Corresponding Units
B
Bytes
K
Kilobytes (Default)
M
Megabytes
G
Gigabytes
T
Terabytes
P
Petabytes

The letter case of these characters is ignored.

Any white space that separates the size specification and the units abbreviation in the same argument is ignored. For example, the specifications "128M" and "128 m" are both interpreted as 128 megabytes.

When a size argument is omitted, the default size for that object applies, based either on the setting of a configuration parameter, or on the system default if no parameter is set. Storage spaces, for example, have a default size of 100 megabytes.
