warnquota - send mail to users over quota
warnquota [ -ugsid ] [ -F quotaformat ] [ -q quotatab ] [ -c configfile ] [ -a adminsfile ] [ filesystem... ]
warnquota checks the disk quota for specified local filesystems (or for each local filesystem if none specified) and mails a warning message to those users who have reached their softlimit. It is typically run via cron(8). -F, --format=quotaformat Perform setting 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, xfs Quota on XFS filesystem. -q, --quota-tab=quotatab Use quotatab instead of /etc/quotatab as file with device description strings (see quotatab(5) for syntax). -c, --config=configfile Use configfile instead of /etc/warnquota.conf as configuration file (see warnquota.conf(5) for syntax). -a, --admins-file=adminsfile Use adminsfile instead of /etc/quotagrpadmins as a file with administrators of the groups (see quotagrpadmins(5) for syntax). -u, --user check whether users are not exceeding quotas (default). -g, --group check whether groups are not exceeding quotas. If group is exceeding quota a mail is sent to the user specified in /etc/quotagrpadmins. -s, --human-readable[=units] Try to report used space, number of used inodes and limits in more appropriate units than the default ones. Units can be also specified explicitely by an optional argument in format [ kgt ],[ kgt ] where the first character specifies space units and the second character specifies inode units. -i, --no-autofs ignore mountpoints mounted by automounter. -d, --no-details do not attach quota report in email.
