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

     Options:

     -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 al-
	     located.

     -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 reports the quotas of all the filesystems that have a mount option
     file located at its root.	If quota exits with a non-zero status, then
     one or more filesystems are over quota.

FILES
     Each of the following quota files is located at the root of the mounted
     filesystem.  The mount option files are empty files whose existence indi-
     cates that	quotas are to be enabled for that filesystem.

     .quota.user       data file containing user quotas
     .quota.group      data file containing group quotas
     .quota.ops.user   mount option file used to enable	user quotas
     .quota.ops.group  mount option file used to enable	group quotas

HISTORY
     The quota command appeared	in 4.2BSD.
