       quota - display disk usage and limits


       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -guqvswi ] [ -l | [ -QAm ]]
       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -qvswi ] [ -l | [ -QAm ]] -u user...
       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -qvswi ] [ -l | [ -QAm ]] -g group...
       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -qvswugQm ] -f filesystem...


       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.


       -F, --format=format-name
              Show quota  for  specified  format  (ie.  don’t  perform  format
              autodetection).   Possible  format  names  are:  vfsold Original
              quota format with 16-bit UIDs / GIDs, vfsv0  Quota  format  with
              32-bit  UIDs  / GIDs, 64-bit space usage, 32-bit inode usage and
              limits, vfsv1 Quota format with 64-bit quota limits  and  usage,
              rpc (quota over NFS), xfs (quota on XFS filesystem)

       -g, --group
              Print  group quotas for the group of which the user is a member.
              The optional group argument(s)  restricts  the  display  to  the
              specified group(s).

       -u, --user
              flag is equivalent to the default.

       -v, --verbose
              will   display   quotas  on  filesystems  where  no  storage  is

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

       -p, --raw-grace
              When user is in grace period, report time in seconds since epoch
              when his grace time runs out (or has run out). Field is ’0’ when
              no  grace  time  is  in  effect.  This is especially useful when
              parsing output by a script.

       -i, --no-autofs
              ignore mountpoints mounted by automounter

       -l, --local-only
              report quotas only on local filesystems (ie. ignore NFS  mounted

       -A, --all-nfs
              report  quotas for all NFS filesystems even if they report to be
              on the same device.

       -m, --no-mixed-pathnames
              Currently, pathnames  of  NFSv4  mountpoints  are  sent  without
              leading  slash  in the path.  rpc.rquotad uses this to recognize
              NFSv4 mounts and properly prepend pseudoroot of  NFS  filesystem
              to  the  path.  If you specify this option, setquota will always
              send paths with a trailing slash. This can be useful for  legacy
              reasons  but  be  aware that quota over RPC will stop working if
              you are using new rpc.rquotad.

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

       -Q, --quiet-refuse
              Do  not  print  error  message  if  connection to rpc.rquotad is
              refused (usually this happens when rpc.rquotad is not running on
              the server).

       -w, --no-wrap
              Do not wrap the line if the device name is too long. This can be
              useful when parsing the output of quota(1) by a script.

       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.


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


       aquota.user  or
                           quota file at the filesystem root (version 2 quota,
                           non-XFS filesystems)
       quota.user  or
                           quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota,
                           non-XFS filesystems)
       /etc/mtab           default filesystems
