NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     quota - display disk usage	and limits

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     quota [ -njv ] [ idname ...  ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     quota displays users' or projects'	disk usage (in kilobytes) and limits.
     Only the super-user may use the optional idname argument to view the
     limits of another user or project.

     If	a -n flag is supplied, quota will only display user's or project's
     quotas for	local file systems.  Remotely mounted file systems are

     If	a -j flag is supplied, quota will report project quotas.  If the -j
     flag isn't	supplied, quota	will report user quotas.

     Normally, output pertaining to only those filesystems where the user or
     project has exceeded its quota is displayed.  The -v flag causes quota to
     report the	user's or project's quotas even	if they	have not been

     quota reports only	on file	systems	which have disk	quotas.	Remotely
     mounted file systems which	are mounted with the noquota option or without
     the quota option (see fstab(4)) are ignored.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     EFS does not keep quota accounting	for users who do not have quota

     EFS filesystems do	not keep accurate quota	accounting when	quota limits
     are added or removed; quotacheck(1M) must be run to rectify its records.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]
