DESCRIPTION

       quota displays users' disk usage and limits.  By default only the user quotas are printed.
       By default space usage and limits are shown in kbytes (and are named blocks for historical
       reasons).

       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.

OPTIONS

       -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.

       -P, --project
              Print project quotas for the specified project.

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

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

       --always-resolve
              Always try to translate user / group name to uid / gid even if the name is composed
              of digits only.

       -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 filesystems).

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

       -f, --filesystem-list
              report quotas only for filesystems specified on command line.

       -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,  quota  will
              always  send  paths with a leading 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.

       --show-mntpoint
              Show also mount point as a filesystem identification.

       --hide-device
              Do not show device name in a filesystem identification.

       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.  Also viewing of project quota usage and limits is limited to super-user
       only.  Non-super-users can use 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.

DIAGNOSTICS

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

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
