NAME

       quotatool - manipulate filesystem quotas

SYNOPSIS

       quotatool  [-u  uid  |  -g gid] [-b | -i] [-r | -l NUM | -q NUM] [-nvR]
       [-d] filesystem
       quotatool -u | -g  -t TIME [-nv] filesystem
       quotatool [-hV]

DESCRIPTION

       quotatool is a tool for manipulating filesystem quotas.   Depending  on
       the  commandline options given, it can set hard or soft limits on block
       and inode usage, set and reset grace periods, for both  users  and  (if
       your  system supports this) groups.  The filesystem to set the quota on
       is given as the first (and only) non-option element, and it  is  either
       the  block special file (i.e /dev/sda3) or the mount point (i.e. /home)
       for the filesystem.

OPTIONS

       -u [uid]
              Set user quotas

       -g [gid]
              Set group quotas

       uid and gid are either the numerical ID of the user or  group,  or  its
       name in the /etc/passwd and /etc/group files.

       -b     Set block quotas [default]

       -i     Set inode quotas

       The -b and -i  options are persistent -- they stay in effect until they
       are overridden.

       -R     Only  raise  quotas,  never  lower.   Makes   sure   you   don’t
              accidentally lower quotas for a user/group.

       -t TIME
              Set  the  system-wide grace period to TIME.  TIME consists of an
              optional ’-’ or ’+’ character, a number, and optionally  one  of
              the  following modifiers: "seconds", "minutes", "hours", "days",
              "weeks", or "months".  Unique abbreviations (e.g. "s", "mo") are
              also accepted. The default is "seconds"

       -r     Reset the grace period

       -l NUM Set hard limit to NUM

       -q NUM Set soft limit (quota) to NUM

       NUM  consists  of  an  optional  ’-’  or  ’+’  character, a number, and
       optionally one of the following  modifiers:  "MB",  "kB",  "bytes",  or
       "blocks".   Unique  abbreviations  are  also  accepted.  The default is
       "blocks"

       If +/- is supplied, the existing quota is increased or reduced  by  the
       specified amount.

       -d     Dump quota info for user/group in a machine readable format:

                                 |-------  BLOCKS  --------|  |--------  FILES
              --------|
              uid/gid mountpoint current quota limit grace current quota limit
              grace

              grace  is  the  number  of seconds from now until the grace time
              ends. May be negative = time already passed. When quota  is  not
              passed, grace is zero.

       -n     dry-run:  show  what  would  have  been  done  but  don’t change
              anything.  Use together with -v

       -v     Verbose output.  Use  twice  or  thrice  for  even  more  output
              (debugging)

       -h     Print a usage message to stdout and exit successfully

       -V     Print version information to stdout and exit successfully

FILESYSTEMS / FORMATS

       On Linux, quotatool works with both "old" and "new" + "generic" kernel-
       quota formats and also has support for quotas on XFS.

FILES

       quota.user , quota.group (linux)
       quotas (solaris, ...)

BUGS

       Calling quotatool with more than one -v option will cause a segfault on
       some  systems.  This will happen if vprintf (3) fails to check for NULL
       arguments.  GNU libc doesn’t have this problem, solaris libc does.
