QUOTASYNC(1)             General Commands Manual            QUOTASYNC(1)

NAME         top

       quotasync - synchronize in-kernel file system usage and limits to
       disk format

SYNOPSIS         top

       quotasync [ -ugP ] mount-point...
       quotasync [ -ugP ] -a
       quotasync -h | -V

DESCRIPTION         top

       quotasync flushes file system usage and limits from kernel memory
       to quota files stored in the file system. By default only the
       user quotas are synchronized.

       This tool can be useful if you want to display accurate quotas by
       tools that parse quota files, like repquota(8).

OPTIONS         top

       -u, --user
              Synchronize user usage and limits.

       -g, --group
              Synchronize group usage and limits.

       -P, --project
              Synchronize project usage and limits.

       -a, --all
              Synchronize usage and limits on all file systems. You have
              to specify this option or to specify desired file systems.

       -V, --version
              Show program version information and exit.

       -h, --help
              Show program usage and exit.

DIAGNOSTICS         top

       If requested synchronization fails, or invalid option is given,
       quotasync will terminate with non-zero exit code. Otherwise it
       will return zero.

FILES         top

       aquota.user  or  aquota.group
              Quota file at the file system root (version 2 quota, non-
              XFS/GFS2 file systems).
       quota.user  or  quota.group
              Quota file at the file system root (version 1 quota, non-
