NAME

       quotasync - synchronize in-kernel file system usage and limits to disk format

SYNOPSIS

       quotasync [ -ugP ] mount-point...
       quotasync [ -ugP ] -a
       quotasync -h | -V

DESCRIPTION

       quotasync flushes file system usage and limits from kernel memory to quota files stored in
       the file system. By default only the user quotas are synchronized.

       This tool can be useful if you want to display accurate quotas by tools that  parse  quota
       files, like repquota(8).

OPTIONS

       -u, --user
              Synchronize user usage and limits.

       -g, --group
              Synchronize group usage and limits.

       -P, --project
              Synchronize project usage and limits.

       -a, --all
              Synchronize  usage  and limits on all file systems. You have to specify this option
              or to specify desired file systems.

       -V, --version
              Show program version information and exit.

       -h, --help
              Show program usage and exit.

DIAGNOSTICS

       If requested synchronization fails, or invalid option is given, quotasync  will  terminate
       with non-zero exit code. Otherwise it will return zero.

FILES

       aquota.user  or  aquota.group
                       Quota  file  at  the  file system root (version 2 quota, non-XFS/GFS2 file
                       systems).
       quota.user  or  quota.group
                       Quota file at the file system root (version  1  quota,  non-XFS/GFS2  file
                       systems).
