QUOTA(1)                NetBSD General Commands Manual                QUOTA(1)

     quota -- display disk usage and limits

     quota [-ghu] [-v | -q]
     quota [-hu] [-v | -q] user
     quota [-gh] [-v | -q] group
     quota -d [-gh] [-v | -q]

     quota displays users' disk usage and limits.  By default only the user
     quotas are printed.


     -d      Query the kernel for default user or group quota instead of a
             specific user or group.

     -g      Print group quotas for the group of which the user is a member.
             The optional -u flag is equivalent to the default.

     -h      Numbers are displayed in a human readable format.

     -q      Print a more terse message, containing only information on file
             systems where usage is over quota.

     -v      quota will display quotas on file systems where no storage is

     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.

     Only the super-user may use the -d flag.

     The -q flag takes precedence over the -v flag.

     quota tries to report the quotas of all mounted file systems.  If the
     file system is mounted via NFS it will attempt to contact the
     rpc.rquotad(8) daemon on the NFS server.  If quota exits with a non-zero
     status, one or more file systems are over quota.

     libquota(3), fstab(5), edquota(8), quotacheck(8), quotaon(8),
     repquota(8), rpc.rquotad(8)

     The quota command appeared in 4.2BSD.
