rpc.rquotad - remote quota server
/usr/sbin/rpc.rquotad [ -FI ] [ -p port ] [ -s | -S ] [ -x path ]
/usr/sbin/rpc.rquotad [ -h | -V ]
rpc.rquotad is an rpc(3) server which returns quotas for a user of a local filesystem which is mounted by a remote machine over the NFS.
It also allows setting of quotas on NFS mounted filesystem (if configured during compilation and allowed by a command line option -S). The
results are used by quota(1) to display user quotas for remote filesystems and by edquota(8) to set quotas on remote filesystems. rquotad
daemon uses tcp-wrappers library (under service name rquotad) which allows you to specify hosts allowed/disallowed to use the daemon (see
hosts.allow(5) manpage for more information). The rquotad daemon is normally started at boot time from the system startup scripts.
Show program usage and exit. -V, --version Show version of quota tools.
Don't allow setting of quotas (default). This option is available only if utilities were compiled with the rpcsetquota option.
Allow setting of quotas. This option is available only if utilities were compiled with the rpcsetquota option.
Run daemon in foreground (may be useful for debugging purposes).
Do not ignore autofs mountpoints.
-p port, --port port
Listen on alternate port port.
-x path, --xtab path
Set an alternative file with NFSD export table. This file is used to determine pseudoroot of NFSv4 exports. The pseudoroot is then
prepended to each relative path (i.e. a path not beginning by '/') received in a quota RPC request.
aquota.user or aquota.group
quota file at the filesystem root (version 2 quota, non-XFS filesystems)
quota.user or quota.group
quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota, non-XFS filesystems)
/etc/mtab default filesystems
quota(1), rpc(3), nfs(5), services(5), inetd(8)
