QUOTA(1)		    General Commands Manual		      QUOTA(1)

NAME
       quota - display disk usage and limits

SYNOPSIS
       quota [ -F format-name ]	[ -guvs	| q ]
       quota [ -F format-name ]	[ -uvs | q ] user
       quota [ -F format-name ]	[ -gvs | q ] group

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

       quota reports the quotas	of all the filesystems	listed	in  /etc/mtab.
       For  filesystems	 that are NFS-mounted a	call to	the rpc.rquotad	on the
       server machine is performed to get the information.

OPTIONS
       -F format-name
	      Show quota for specified format (ie. don't  perform  format  au-
	      todetection).   Possible	format	names  are:  vfsold (version 1
	      quota), vfsv0 (version 2	quota),	 rpc  (quota  over  NFS),  xfs
	      (quota on	XFS filesystem)

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

       -u     flag is equivalent to the	default.

       -v     will display quotas on filesystems where	no  storage  is	 allo-
	      cated.

       -s     flag  will make quota(1) try to choose units for showing limits,
	      used space and used inodes.

       -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	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.

DIAGNOSTICS
       If quota	exits with a non-zero status, one or more filesystems are over
       quota.

FILES
       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
