NAME

       rquotad, rpc.rquotad - remote quota server

SYNOPSIS

       rpc.rquotad [ -sSFI ] [ -p port ]

DESCRIPTION

       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

       -V, --version
              Shows 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
