quota displays users' disk usage and limits. By default only the
user quotas are printed. By default space usage and limits are shown
in kbytes (and are named blocks for historical reasons).
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.
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)
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).
flag is equivalent to the default.
Print project quotas for the specified project.
will display quotas on filesystems where no storage is
option will make quota(1) try to choose units for showing
limits, used space and used inodes.
Always try to translate user / group name to uid / gid even if
the name is composed of digits only.
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.
ignore mountpoints mounted by automounter
report quotas only on local filesystems (ie. ignore NFS
report quotas for all NFS filesystems even if they report to
be on the same device.
report quotas only for filesystems specified on command line.
Currently, pathnames of NFSv4 mountpoints are sent without
leading 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.
Print a more terse message, containing only information on
filesystems where usage is over quota.
Do not print error message if connection to rpc.rquotad is
refused (usually this happens when rpc.rquotad is not running
on the server).
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. Also viewing of project
quota usage and limits is limited to super-user only. Non-super-
users 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.
