QUOTA(1) BSD General Commands Manual QUOTA(1)
quota -- display disk usage and limits
quota [-g] [-u] [-v | -q]
quota [-u] [-v | -q] user
quota [-g] [-v | -q] group
Quota displays users' disk usage and limits. By default only the user quotas are printed.
-g Print group quotas for the group of which the user is a member. The optional -u
flag is equivalent to the default.
-v quota will display quotas on filesystems where no storage is allocated.
-q Print a more terse message, containing only information on filesystems where usage
is over quota.
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 -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.
Quota reports the quotas of all the filesystems that have a mount option file located at its
root. If quota exits with a non-zero status, then one or more filesystems are over quota.
Each of the following quota files is located at the root of the mounted filesystem. The
mount option files are empty files whose existence indicates that quotas are to be enabled
for that filesystem.
.quota.user data file containing user quotas
.quota.group data file containing group quotas
.quota.ops.user mount option file used to enable user quotas
.quota.ops.group mount option file used to enable group quotas
The quota command appeared in 4.2BSD.
