QUOTA(1)                FreeBSD General Commands Manual               QUOTA(1)

NAME
     quota - display disk usage and limits

SYNOPSIS
     quota [-g] [-u] [-v | -q]
     quota [-u] [-v | -q] user
     quota [-g] [-v | -q] group

DESCRIPTION
     Quota 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.
             The optional -u flag is equivalent to the default.

     -v      Quota will display quotas on filesystems where no storage is
             allocated.

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

     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.

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

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

HISTORY
     The quota command appeared in 4.2BSD.
