Man Quota  Command

This tutorial shows the man page for man quota in linux.

Open terminal with 'su' access and type the command as shown below:
man quota

Result of the Command Execution shown below:

QUOTA(1)                                                              QUOTA(1)

quota display disk usage and limits

quota [ F format name ] [ guqvswi ] [ l | [ QAm ]]
quota [ F format name ] [ qvswi ] [ l | [ QAm ]] u user...
quota [ F format name ] [ qvswi ] [ l | [ QAm ]] g group...
quota [ F format name ] [ qvswugQm ] f filesystem...

quota displays users' disk usage and limits. By default only the user
quotas are printed.

quota reports the quotas of all the filesystems listed in /etc/mtab.
For filesystems that are NFS mounted a call to the rpc.rquotad on the
server machine is performed to get the information.

F, format=format name
Show quota 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)

g, group
Print group quotas for the group of which the user is a member.
The optional group argument(s) restricts the display to the
specified group(s).

u, user
flag is equivalent to the default.

v, verbose
will display quotas on filesystems where no storage is allo

s, human readable
option will make quota(1) try to choose units for showing lim
its, used space and used inodes.

p, raw grace
When user is in grace period, report time in seconds since epoch
when his grace time runs out (or has run out). Field is '0' when
no grace time is in effect. This is especially useful when
parsing output by a script.

i, no autofs
ignore mountpoints mounted by automounter

l, local only
report quotas only on local filesystems (ie. ignore NFS mounted

A, all nfs
report quotas for all NFS filesystems even if they report to be
on the same device.

m, no mixed pathnames
Currently, pathnames of NFSv4 mountpoints are sent without lead
ing 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 trailing slash. This can be useful for legacy rea
sons but be aware that quota over RPC will stop working if you
are using new rpc.rquotad.

q, quiet
Print a more terse message, containing only information on
filesystems where usage is over quota.

Q, quiet refuse
Do not print error message if connection to rpc.rquotad is
refused (usually this happens when rpc.rquotad is not running on
the server).

w, no wrap
Do not wrap the line if the device name is too long. This can be
useful when parsing the output of quota(1) by a script.

Specifying both g and u displays both the user quotas and the group
quotas (for the user).

Only the super user may use the u flag and the optional user argument
to view the limits of other users. Non super users can use the the g
flag and optional group argument to view only the limits of groups of
which they are members.

The q flag takes precedence over the v flag.

If quota exits with a non zero status, one or more filesystems are over

aquota.user or
quota file at the filesystem root (version 2 quota,
non XFS filesystems)
quota.user or
quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota,
non XFS filesystems)
/etc/mtab default filesystems
