rquotad, rpc.rquotad - remote quota server
rpc.rquotad [ -sSFI ] [ -p port ]
rquotad is an rpc(3) server which returns quotas for a user of a local
filesystem which is mounted by a remote machine over the NFS. It also
allows setting of quotas on NFS mounted filesystem (if configured
during compilation and allowed by a command line option -S). The
results are used by quota(1) to display user quotas for remote
filesystems and by edquota(8) to set quotas on remote filesystems.
rquotad daemon uses tcp-wrappers library (under service name rquotad)
which allows you to specify hosts allowed/disallowed to use the daemon
(see hosts.allow(5) manpage for more information). The rquotad daemon
is normally started at boot time from the system startup scripts.
Shows version of quota tools.
Don’t allow setting of quotas (default). This option is
available only if utilities were compiled with the rpcsetquota
Allow setting of quotas. This option is available only if
utilities were compiled with the rpcsetquota option.
Run daemon in foreground (may be useful for debugging purposes).
Do not ignore autofs mountpoints.
-p port, --port port
Listen on alternate port port.
-x path, --xtab path
Set an alternative file with NFSD export table. This file is
used to determine pseudoroot of NFSv4 exports. The pseudoroot is
then prepended to each relative path (i.e. a path not beginning
by ’/’) received in a quota RPC request.
