       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 threated as an UID/GID.

       -r     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.

       -F quotaformat
              Perform setting for specified format (ie. don’t  perform  format
              autodetection).   Possible  format  names are: vfsold (version 1
              quota), vfsv0 (version 2  quota),  rpc  (quota  over  NFS),  xfs
              (quota on XFS filesystem)

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

       -g     Set group quotas for named group.

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

       -b     Read information to set from stdin (input format is name  block-
              softlimit block-hardlimit inode-softlimit inode-hardlimit ).

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

       -T     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     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,
