       quotatool - manipulate filesystem quotas


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


       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.


       -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. Prefix : allows using numerical uid/gid not  present  in
       /etc/passwd or /etc/group.

       -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".  The argument should be preceded
              by -u|-g and -b|-i

       -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 (integer  or  floating  point),
       and  optionally  one  of  the  following  modifiers:  "Kb",  "Mb", "Gb", "Tb", "bytes", or
       "blocks".  Unique abbreviations are also accepted.  The default is "blocks". Modifiers are
       base 2 for block quotas (1k = 1024), and base 10 for inode quotas (1k = 1000)

       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


       On  Linux,  quotatool  works with both "old", "vfsv0" and "vfsv1" + "generic" kernel-quota
       formats.  Supported filesystems: ext2, ext3, ext4, ReiserFS and XFS.

       Mac OS X: hfs

       FreeBSD / OpenBSD / NetBSD: filesystems ufs and ffs


       Set soft block limit to 800Mb, hard block limit to 1.2 Gb for user mpg4 on /home:

          quotatool -u mpg4 -b -q 800M -l 1.2G /home

       Raise soft block limit by 100M for non-existent gid 12345 on /dev/loop3:

          quotatool -g :12345 -b -q +100M /dev/loop3

       Set soft inode limit to 1.8k (1800), hard inode limit to 2000 for user johan on /var:

          quotatool -u johan -i -q 1.8K -l 2000 /var

       Set the global block grace period to one week on /home:

          quotatool -u  -b -t "1 week" /home

       Restart inode grace period for user johan on root filesystem:

          quotatool -u johan -i -r /


       Grace periods are set on a  "global  per  quotatype  and  filesystem"  basis  only.   Each
       quotatype  (usrquota  / grpquota) on each filesystem has two grace periods - one for block
       limits and one for inode limits.  It is not possible to set different  grace  periods  for
       users on the same filesystem.

       According to 'man quotactl', global grace periods should be supported on BSD. quotatool on
       BSD does the right thing, which can be confirmed with 'edquota  -t'.  However,  the  value
       doesn't seem to be used by the system when usage passes a soft limit.

       So  far,  I  haven't  been able to make global grace periods work on Mac OS X, either with
       'edquota -t' or quotatool.

       Using non-existent uids/gids like ":12345" can be useful  when  configuring  quotas  on  a
       mounted  filesystem  which is a separate system in it self, like when preparing an install
       image or repairing a filesystem from another installation.

       Limit arguments can be specified in several ways, these are all equivalent:
         1 "Mb"

       Use +/- to raise/lower quotas relative to current limits

       Use -v (or -v -v) to see verbose/debug info when running commands


       quota.user , (linux, *BSD, aix)
       .quota.user , (Mac OS X)
       quotas (solaris, ...)


       Please check for any open issues. Feel free to add a
       new issue if you find an unresolved bug!

       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.
