SETQUOTA(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		   SETQUOTA(8)

NAME
     setquota -- set disk quotas for users or groups

SYNOPSIS
     setquota [-u] [-f fs] [-bhval] [-bsval] [-ihval] [-isval] user ...
     setquota [-g] [-f fs] [-bhval] [-bsval] [-ihval] [-isval] group ...

DESCRIPTION
     Setquota sets block and inode quotas for groups or	users.

     Options:

     -u	     Specify that operations should be performed on users.  The	-u
	     flag is the default.

     -g	     Specify that operations should be performed on groups.

     -f	fs   Specifies the filesystem to set quota information for.  If	fs
	     does not have quotas enabled an error will	result.

	     Getquota doesn't operate on anything but UFS filesystems.

     -bhval  Block hard	quota.

     -bsval  Block soft	quota.

     -ihval  Inode hard	quota.

     -isval  Inode soft	quota.

     Block sizes are in	the form of valX where X is {K,k} for kilobytes	or
     {M,m} for megabytes.  The default unit is kilobytes.

     Inode sizes have no modifiers.  Cope.

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

BUGS
     For some reason the grace period stuff doesn't work.  Large portions of
     the mklist() code need to be rewritten.  I'll do this as I	have time.
     This man page needs to be rewritten.
