NAME         top

       quota_nld - quota netlink message daemon

SYNOPSIS         top

       quota_nld [[ -D | -C ][ -F ][ -b ]]

DESCRIPTION         top

       quota_nld listens on netlink socket and processes received quota
       warnings. By default quota_nld forwards warning messages to both
       the system's DBUS (so that the desktop manager can display a
       dialog) and the last-accessed terminal of the user to whom each
       warning is directed. Either of these destinations can be disabled
       with the -D and -C options, respectively.

       In the case of the user's terminal, quota messages about falling
       below the hard and soft limits are not sent unless the -b option
       is specified. In the case of the DBUS, all quota messages are

       Note, that you have to enable the kernel support for sending
       quota messages over netlink (in Filesystems->Quota menu).
