QUOTA(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		      QUOTA(1)

     quota -- display disk usage and limits

     quota [-glu] [-v |	-q]
     quota [-lu] [-v | -q] user	...
     quota -g [-l] [-v | -q] group ...

     The quota utility displays	users' disk usage and limits.  By default only
     the user quotas are printed.

     The following options are available:

     -g	     Print group quotas	for the	group of which the user	is a member.

     -l	     Do	not report quotas on NFS file systems.

     -q	     Print a more terse	message, containing only information on	file
	     systems where usage is over quota.

     -u	     Print the user quotas.  This is the default unless	-g is speci-

     -v	     Display quotas on file systems where no storage is	allocated.

     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.  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.

     The quota utility tries to	report the quotas of all mounted file systems.
     If	the file system	is mounted via NFS, it will attempt to contact the
     rpc.rquotad(8) daemon on the NFS server.  For UFS file systems, quotas
     must be turned on in /etc/fstab.  If quota	exits with a non-zero status,
     one or more file systems are over quota.

     If	the -l flag is specified, quota	will not check NFS file	systems.

     quota.user	  located at the file system root with user quotas  located at the file system root with group quotas
     /etc/fstab	  to find file system names and	locations

     The quota command appeared	in 4.2BSD.

     quotactl(2), fstab(5), edquota(8),	quotacheck(8), quotaon(8),
     repquota(8), rpc.rquotad(8)
