       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 information.


       -F, --format=format-name
              Show quota  for  specified  format  (ie.  don't  perform  format
              autodetection).   Possible  format  names  are:  vfsold Original
              quota format with 16-bit UIDs / GIDs, vfsv0  Quota  format  with
              32-bit  UIDs  / GIDs, 64-bit space usage, 32-bit inode usage and
              limits, vfsv1 Quota format with 64-bit quota limits  and  usage,
              rpc (quota over NFS), xfs (quota on XFS filesystem)

       -g, --group
              Print  group quotas for the group of which the user is a member.
              The optional group argument(s)  restricts  the  display  to  the
              specified group(s).

       -u, --user
              flag is equivalent to the default.

       -v, --verbose
              will  display  quotas  on  filesystems where no storage is allo-

       -s, --human-readable
              option will make quota(1) try to choose units for  showing  lim-
              its, used space and used inodes.

              Always  try  to translate user / group name to uid / gid even if
              the name is composed of digits only.

       -p, --raw-grace
              When user is in grace period, report time in seconds since epoch
              when his grace time runs out (or has run out). Field is '0' when
              no grace time is in effect.   This  is  especially  useful  when
              parsing output by a script.

       -i, --no-autofs
              ignore mountpoints mounted by automounter

              mounts  and properly prepend pseudoroot of NFS filesystem to the
              path. If you specify this option, quota will always  send  paths
              with  a leading slash. This can be useful for legacy reasons but
              be aware that quota over RPC will stop working if you are  using
              new rpc.rquotad.

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

       -Q, --quiet-refuse
              Do not print error  message  if  connection  to  rpc.rquotad  is
              refused (usually this happens when rpc.rquotad is not running on
              the server).

       -w, --no-wrap
              Do not wrap the line if the device name is too long. This can be
              useful when parsing the output of quota(1) by a script.

              Show also mount point as a filesystem identification.

              Do not show device name in a filesystem identification.

       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 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


       aquota.user  or  aquota.group
                           quota file at the filesystem root (version 2 quota,
                           non-XFS filesystems)
       quota.user  or  quota.group
                           quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota,
                           non-XFS filesystems)
       /etc/mtab           default filesystems


       quotactl(2),   fstab(5),   edquota(8),    quotacheck(8),    quotaon(8),
       quota_nld(8), repquota(8), warnquota(8), setquota(8)
