NAME

       rpc.rquotad - remote quota server

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/sbin/rpc.rquotad [ -FI ] [ -p port ] [ -s | -S ] [ -x path ]

       /usr/sbin/rpc.rquotad [ -h | -V ]

DESCRIPTION

       rpc.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.

OPTIONS

       -h, --help
              Show program usage and exit.  -V, --version Show version of quota tools.

       -s, --no-setquota
              Don't allow setting of quotas (default). This option is available only if utilities
              were compiled with the rpcsetquota option.

       -S, --setquota
              Allow  setting  of quotas. This option is available only if utilities were compiled
              with the rpcsetquota option.

       -F, --foreground
              Run daemon in foreground (may be useful for debugging purposes).

       -I, --autofs
              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.

FILES

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