 quota(1)                                                           quota(1)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      quota - display disk usage and limits

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      quota [-v] [user  ... ]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The quota command displays the disk usage and limits for one or more
      users.  Without the -v option, it displays information only when the
      usage exceeds the limits.

      user is a user name or a numeric UID.  The default is the login user

      Only users with appropriate privileges can view the limits of other

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      The quota command recognizes the following option:

           -v             Display the statistics whether they exceed limits
                          or not.  Note that no usage statistics exist if no
                          quota is set.

    Environment Variables
      LC_MESSAGES determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If LC_MESSAGES is not specified in the environment or is set to the
      empty string, the value of LANG is used as a default for each
      unspecified or empty variable.  If LANG is not specified or is set to
      the empty string, a default of "C" (see lang(5)) is used instead of

      If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting,
      quota behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to "C".
      See environ(5).

    International Code Set Support    [Toc]    [Back]
      Single- and multi-byte character code sets are supported.
