QUOTA(1)							      QUOTA(1)

       quota - display disk usage and limits

       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -guvxsil | q ]
       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -uvxsil | q ] user...
       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -gvxsil | q ] group...

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

       quota reports the quotas of all the filesystems	listed	in  /etc/mtab.
       For  filesystems	 that are NFS-mounted a call to the rpc.rquotad on the
       server machine is performed to get the information.

       -F format-name
	      Show quota  for  specified  format  (ie.	don't  perform	format
	      autodetection).	Possible  format  names are: vfsold (version 1
	      quota), vfsv0 (version 2	quota),	 rpc  (quota  over  NFS),  xfs
	      (quota on XFS filesystem)

       -g     Print  group quotas for the group of which the user is a member.
	      The optional group argument(s)  restricts	 the  display  to  the
	      specified group(s).

       -u     flag is equivalent to the default.

       -v     will  display  quotas  on	 filesystems where no storage is allo-

       -s     option will make quota(1) try to choose units for	 showing  lim-
	      its, used space and used inodes.

       -i     ignore mountpoints mounted by automounter

       -l     report  quotas only on local filesystems (ie. ignore NFS mounted

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

       -x     Always  try  to  translate name to id, even if it is composed of
	      only digits.

       -Q     Do not print error  message  if  connection  to  rpc.rquotad  is
	      refused (usually this happens when rpc.rquotad is not running on
	      the server).

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

       Only  the super-user may use the -u flag and the optional user argument
       to view the limits of other users.  Non-super-users can use the 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.

       If quota exits with a non-zero status, one or more filesystems are over

       aquota.user  or	aquota.group
			   quota file at the filesystem root (version 2 quota,
			   non-XFS filesystems)
       quota.user  or  quota.group
			   quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota,
			   non-XFS filesystems)
       /etc/mtab	   default filesystems

       quotactl(2),    fstab(5),    edquota(8),	  quotacheck(8),   quotaon(8),
