       setquota is a command line quota editor.  The filesystem, user/group/project 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/project name it is treated as an UID/GID/project ID.

       -r, --remote
              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.

       -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, setquota 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.

       -F, --format=quotaformat
              Perform setting 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)

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

       -g, --group
              Set group quotas for named group.

       -P, --project
              Set project quotas for named project.

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

              Always  try to translate user / group / project name to uid / gid / project ID even
              if the name is composed of digits only.

       -b, --batch
              Read information to set from stdin (input format  is  name  block-softlimit  block-
              hardlimit  inode-softlimit inode-hardlimit ). Empty lines and lines starting with #
              are ignored.

       -c, --continue-batch
              If parsing of an input line in batch mode fails, continue with processing the  next

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

       -T, --edit-times
              Alter times for individual user/group/project when  softlimit  is  enforced.  Times
              block-grace and inode-grace are specified in seconds or can be string 'unset'.

       -a, --all
              Go through all filesystems with quota in /etc/mtab and perform setting.

       block-softlimit  and block-hardlimit are interpreted as multiples of kibibyte (1024 bytes)
       blocks by default.  Symbols K, M, G, and T can be appended to  numeric  value  to  express
       kibibytes, mebibytes, gibibytes, and tebibytes.

       inode-softlimit  and inode-hardlimit are interpreted literally. Symbols k, m, g, and t can
       be appended to numeric value to express multiples of 10^3, 10^6, 10^9, and 10^12 inodes.

       To disable a quota, set the corresponding parameter to 0. To  change  quotas  for  several
       filesystems, invoke once for each filesystem.

       Only the super-user may edit quotas.
