QUOTA(1)		  BSD 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
     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.
	     The optional -u flag is equivalent	to the default.

     -v	     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.

     The quota utility 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.
