       warnquota - send mail to users over quota


       warnquota  [ -ugsid ] [ -F quotaformat ] [ -q quotatab ] [ -c configfile ] [ -a adminsfile
       ] [ filesystem...  ]


       warnquota checks the disk quota  for  specified  local  filesystems  (or  for  each  local
       filesystem  if none specified) and mails a warning message to those users who have reached
       their softlimit.  It is typically run via cron(8).

       -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, xfs Quota on XFS

       -q, --quota-tab=quotatab
              Use quotatab instead of /etc/quotatab as file with device description strings  (see
              quotatab(5) for syntax).

       -c, --config=configfile
              Use   configfile   instead   of  /etc/warnquota.conf  as  configuration  file  (see
              warnquota.conf(5) for syntax).

       -a, --admins-file=adminsfile
              Use adminsfile instead of /etc/quotagrpadmins as a file with administrators of  the
              groups (see quotagrpadmins(5) for syntax).

       -u, --user
              check whether users are not exceeding quotas (default).

       -g, --group
              check  whether  groups are not exceeding quotas. If group is exceeding quota a mail
              is sent to the user specified in /etc/quotagrpadmins.

       -s, --human-readable
              Try to report used space, number of used inodes  and  limits  in  more  appropriate
              units than the default ones.

       -i, --no-autofs
              ignore mountpoints mounted by automounter.

       -d, --no-details
              do not attach quota report in email.
