NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     quota - display disk usage and limits

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     quota [-g] [-u] [-v | -q]
     quota [-u] [-v | -q] user
     quota [-g] [-v | -q] group

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     quota displays users' disk usage and limits.  By default only the user
     quotas are printed.

     The options are as follows:

     -g       Print  group quotas for the group of which the user
is a member.
             The optional -u flag is equivalent to the default.

     -v      quota will display quotas on  filesystems  where  no
storage is allocated.

     -q      Print a more terse message, containing only information on
             filesystems where usage is over quota.

     Specifying both -g and -u displays both the user quotas  and
the group
     quotas (for the user).

     Only the superuser may use the -u flag and the optional user
argument to
     view the limits of other users.  Non-superusers can use  the
-g flag and
     optional group argument to view only the limits of groups of
which they
     are members.

     The -q flag takes precedence over the -v flag.

     quota tries to report the quotas of all mounted filesystems.
If the
     filesystem  is  mounted  via NFS, it will attempt to contact
     rpc.rquotad(8) daemon on the NFS server.  For  FFS  filesystems, quotas
     must be turned on in /etc/fstab.  If quota exits with a nonzero status,
     one or more filesystems are over quota.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

     quota.user   located at the filesystem root with user quotas
     quota.group   located at the filesystem root with group quotas
     /etc/fstab   to find filesystem names and locations
