quot - summarize file system ownership SYNOPSIS
quot [ option ] ... [ filesystem ] DESCRIPTION
Quot prints the number of blocks in the named filesystem currently owned by each user. If no filesystem is named, a default name is assumed. The following options are available: -n Cause the pipeline ncheck filesystem | sort +0n | quot -n filesystem to produce a list of all files and their owners. -c Print three columns giving file size in blocks, number of files of that size, and cumulative total of blocks in that size or smaller file. -f Print count of number of files as well as space owned by each user. FILES
/etc/passwd to get user names SEE ALSO
du(1), ls(1) BUGS
Default file systems vary with installations. Holes in files are counted as if they actually occupied space. QUOT(8)

quot - summarize file system ownership SYNOPSIS
quot [-acfhnv] filesystem... quot -a [-cfhnv] DESCRIPTION
quot displays the number of blocks (1024 bytes) in the named filesystem (one or more) currently owned by each user. There is a limit of 2048 blocks. Files larger than this will be counted as a 2048 block file, but the total block count will be correct. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -a Generate a report for all mounted file systems. -c Display three columns giving a file size in blocks, the number of files of that size, and a cumulative total of blocks containing files of that size or a smaller size. -f Display three columns giving, for each user, the number of blocks owned, the count of number of files, and the user name. This option is incompatible with the -c and -v options. -h Estimate the number of blocks in the file. This does not account for files with holes in them. -n Attach names to the list of files read from standard input. quot -n cannot be used alone, because it expects data from standard input. For example, the pipeline ncheck myfilesystem | sort +0n | quot -n myfilesystem will produce a list of all files and their owners. This option is incompatible with all other options. -v In addition to the default output, display three columns containing the number of blocks not accessed in the last 30, 60, and 90 days. OPERANDS
filesystem mount-point of the filesystem(s) being checked USAGE
See largefile(5) for the description of the behavior of quot when encountering files greater than or equal to 2 Gbyte ( 2^31 bytes). EXIT STATUS
