QUOTAON(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			       QUOTAON(8)

NAME
     quotaon, quotaoff -- turn filesystem quotas on and off

SYNOPSIS
     quotaon [-g] [-u] [-v] filesystem ...
     quotaon [-g] [-u] [-v] -a
     quotaoff [-g] [-u] [-v] filesystem ...
     quotaoff [-g] [-u] [-v] -a

DESCRIPTION
     Quotaon announces to the system that disk quotas should be enabled on one or more filesys-
     tems.  Quotaoff announces to the system that the specified filesystems should have disk quo-
     tas turned off.  The filesystem must be mounted and it must have the appropriate mount
     option file located at its root, the .quota.ops.user file for user quota configuration, and
     the .quota.ops.group file for group quota configuration.  Quotaon also expects each filesys-
     tem to have the appropriate quota data files located at its root, the .quota.user file for
     user data, and the .quota.group file for group data.  These filenames and their root loca-
     tion cannot be overridden.  By default, quotaon will attempt to enable both user and group
     quotas.  By default, quotaoff will disable both user and group quotas.

     Available options:

     -a      If the -a flag is supplied in place of any filesystem names, quotaon/quotaoff will
	     enable/disable any filesystems with an existing mount option file at its root.  The
	     mount option file specifies the types of quotas that are to be configured.

     -g      Only group quotas will be enabled/disabled.  The mount option file,
	     .quota.ops.group, must exist at the root of the filesystem.

     -u      Only user quotas will be enabled/disabled.  The mount option file, .quota.ops.user,
	     must exist at the root of the filesystem.

     -v      Causes quotaon and quotaoff to print a message for each filesystem where quotas are
	     turned on or off.

     Specifying both -g and -u is equivalent to the default.

     Quotas for both users and groups will automatically be turned on at filesystem mount if the
     appropriate mount option file and binary data file is in place at its root.

FILES
     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
