quotaon, quotaoff -- turn filesystem quotas on and off
quotaon [-g] [-u] [-v] filesystem ...
quotaon [-g] [-u] [-v] -a
quotaoff [-g] [-u] [-v] filesystem ...
quotaoff [-g] [-u] [-v] -a
quotaon announces to the system that disk quotas should be enabled on one
or more filesystems. quotaoff announces to the system that the specified
filesystems should have any disk quotas turned off. The filesystems
specified must have entries in /etc/fstab and be mounted. quotaon
expects each filesystem to have quota files named quota.user and
quota.group which are located at the root of the associated file system.
These defaults may be overridden in /etc/fstab. By default both user and
group quotas are enabled.
-a If the -a flag is supplied in place of any filesystem names,
quotaon/quotaoff will enable/disable all the filesystems indi-
cated in /etc/fstab to be read-write with disk quotas. By
default only the types of quotas listed in /etc/fstab are
-g Only group quotas listed in /etc/fstab should be enabled/dis-
-u Only user quotas listed in /etc/fstab should be enabled/disabled.
-v Causes quotaon and quotaoff to print a message for each filesys-
tem where quotas are turned on or off.
Specifying both -g and -u is equivalent to the default.
quota.user at the filesystem root with user quotas
quota.group at the filesystem root with group quotas
