QUOTA(1)										 QUOTA(1)

       quota - display disk usage and limits

       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -guvs | q ]
       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -uvs | q ] user
       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -gvs | q ] group

       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

       -F 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     Print group quotas for the group of which the user is a member.  The optional

       -u     flag is equivalent to the default.

       -v     will display quotas on filesystems where no storage is allocated.

       -s     flag will make quota(1) try to choose units for showing limits, used space and used

       -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

       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 quota.
