       setquota  is  a  command line quota editor.  The filesystem, user/group
       name and new quotas for this filesystem can be specified on the command
       line.  Note that if a number is given in the place of a user/group name
       it is treated as an UID/GID.

       -r, --remote
              Edit also remote quota use rpc.rquotad on remote server  to  set
              quota.  This  option  is  available  only  if  quota  tools were
              compiled with enabled support for setting quotas over RPC.

       -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.

       -F, --format=quotaformat
              Perform setting 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)

       -u, --user
              Set user quotas for named user. This is the default.

       -g, --group
              Set group quotas for named group.

       -p, --prototype=protoname
              Use  quota  settings of user or group protoname to set the quota
              for the named user or group.

       -b, --batch
              Read information to set from stdin (input format is name  block-
              softlimit  block-hardlimit  inode-softlimit  inode-hardlimit  ).
              Empty lines and lines starting with # are ignored.

       -c, --continue-batch
              If parsing of an input line in batch mode fails,  continue  with
              processing the next line.

       -t, --edit-period
              Set  grace  times for users/groups. Times block-grace and inode-
              grace are specified in seconds.

       -T, --edit-times
              Alter  times  for  individual  user/group  when   softlimit   is
              enforced.  Times  block-grace  and  inode-grace are specified in
              seconds or can be string ’unset’.

       -a, --all
              Go through all filesystems with quota in /etc/mtab  and  perform

       To  disable  a  quota,  set  the coresponding parameter to 0. To change
       quotas for several filesystems, invoke once for each filesystem.

       Only the super-user may edit quotas.

                           quota file at the filesystem root (version 2 quota,
                           non-XFS filesystems)
       quota.user or
                           quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota,
