rpc.rquotad - remote quota server
/usr/sbin/rpc.rquotad [ -FI ] [ -p port ] [ -s | -S ] [ -x path ] /usr/sbin/rpc.rquotad [ -h | -V ]
rpc.rquotad is an rpc(3) server which returns quotas for a user of a local filesystem which is mounted by a remote machine over the NFS. It also allows setting of quotas on NFS mounted filesystem (if configured during compilation and allowed by a command line option -S). The results are used by quota(1) to display user quotas for remote filesystems and by edquota(8) to set quotas on remote filesystems. rquotad daemon uses tcp- wrappers library (under service name rquotad) which allows you to specify hosts allowed/disallowed to use the daemon (see hosts.allow(5) manpage for more information). The rquotad daemon is normally started at boot time from the system startup scripts.
-h, --help Show program usage and exit. -V, --version Show version of quota tools. -s, --no-setquota Don't allow setting of quotas (default). This option is available only if utilities were compiled with the rpcsetquota option. -S, --setquota Allow setting of quotas. This option is available only if utilities were compiled with the rpcsetquota option. -F, --foreground Run daemon in foreground (may be useful for debugging purposes). -I, --autofs Do not ignore autofs mountpoints. -p port, --port port Listen on alternate port port. -x path, --xtab path Set an alternative file with NFSD export table. This file is used to determine pseudoroot of NFSv4 exports. The pseudoroot is then prepended to each relative path (i.e. a path not beginning by '/') received in a quota RPC request.
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
