When a user clicks Use Quota Time, she can view sites in any quota category until the quota session ends. The default quota session time (configured via the Settings > Filtering page) is 10 minutes.
Note 
The Quota option should not be used when individual clients are managed by multiple Policy Servers.
The timing information associated with this feature is not shared among Policy Servers, and affected clients could be granted more or less Internet access than you intend.
Once the quota session ends, a request for a quota site results in another quota block message. Users who have not depleted their daily quota allocation can start a new quota session.
Once quota time is configured, Websense software uses a priority list to determine how to respond when a user requests a site in a quota category. The software looks for quota time configured for:
If a user is a member of multiple groups, Websense software grants quota time according to the Use more restrictive blocking setting on the Settings > Filtering page (see Configuring Websense filtering settings).
Internet applets, such as Java or Flash applets, may not respond as expected to quota time restrictions. Even if it is accessed from a quota-restricted site, an applet that runs within the browser can continue running beyond the configured quota session time.
This is because such applets are downloaded completely to a client machine and run just like applications, without communicating back to the original host server. If the user clicks the browser's Refresh button, however, Websense software detects the communication to the host server, and then blocks the request according to applicable quota restrictions.
