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


NAME
quota -- display disk usage and limits
SYNOPSIS
quota [-g] [-u] [-v | -q] quota [-u] [-v | -q] user quota [-g] [-v | -q] group
DESCRIPTION
quota displays users' disk usage and limits. By default only the user quotas are printed. Options: -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 tries to report the quotas of all mounted filesystems. If the filesystem is mounted via NFS it will attempt to contact the rpc.rquotad(8) daemon on the NFS server. For FFS filesystems, quotas must be turned on in /etc/fstab. If quota exits with a non-zero status, one or more filesystems are over quota.
FILES
quota.user located at the filesystem root with user quotas quota.group located at the filesystem root with group quotas /etc/fstab to find filesystem names and locations
