       quota - display disk usage and limits

       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=format-name
	      Show quota  for  specified  format  (ie.	don't  perform	format
	      autodetection).	Possible  format  names	 are:  vfsold Original
	      quota format with 16-bit UIDs / GIDs, vfsv0  Quota  format  with
	      32-bit  UIDs  / GIDs, 64-bit space usage, 32-bit inode usage and
	      limits, vfsv1 Quota format with 64-bit quota limits  and	usage,
	      rpc (quota over NFS), xfs (quota on XFS filesystem)

       -g, --group
	      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, --user
	      flag is equivalent to the default.

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

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

	      Always  try  to translate user / group name to uid / gid even if
	      the name is composed of digits only.

       -p, --raw-grace
	      When user is in grace period, report time in seconds since epoch
	      when his grace time runs out (or has run out). Field is '0' when
	      no grace time is in effect.   This  is  especially  useful  when
	      parsing output by a script.

       -i, --no-autofs
	      ignore mountpoints mounted by automounter

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

       -A, --all-nfs
	      report quotas for all NFS filesystems even if they report to  be
	      on the same device.

       -f, --filesystem-list
	      report quotas only for filesystems specified on command line.

       -m, --no-mixed-pathnames
	      Currently, pathnames of NFSv4 mountpoints are sent without lead-
	      ing slash in the path.  rpc.rquotad uses this to recognize NFSv4
	      mounts  and properly prepend pseudoroot of NFS filesystem to the
	      path. If you specify this option, quota will always  send	 paths
	      with  a leading slash. This can be useful for legacy reasons but
	      be aware that quota over RPC will stop working if you are	 using
	      new rpc.rquotad.

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

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

       -w, --no-wrap
	      Do not wrap the line if the device name is too long. This can be
	      useful when parsing the output of quota(1) by a script.

	      Show also mount point as a filesystem identification.

	      Do not show device name in a filesystem identification.

       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
