       setquota  is  a  command line quota editor.  The filesystem, user/group
       name and new quotas for this filesystem can be specified on the command
       line.  Note that if a number is given in the place of a user/group name
       it is treated as an UID/GID.

       -r, --remote
              Edit also remote quota use rpc.rquotad on remote server  to  set
              quota.  This  option  is available only if quota tools were com-
              piled with enabled support for setting quotas over RPC.

       -m, --no-mixed-pathnames
              Currently, pathnames of NFSv4 mountpoints are sent without lead-
              ing slash in the path.  rpc.rquotad uses this to recognize NFSv4
              mounts and properly prepend pseudoroot of NFS filesystem to  the
              path.  If  you  specify  this  option, setquota will always send
              paths with a leading slash. This can be useful for  legacy  rea-
              sons  but  be aware that quota over RPC will stop working if you
              are using new rpc.rquotad.

       -F, --format=quotaformat
              Perform setting 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)

       -u, --user
              Set user quotas for named user. This is the default.

       -g, --group
              Set group quotas for named group.

       -p, --prototype=protoname
              Use  quota  settings of user or group protoname to set the quota
              for the named user or group.

       -t, --edit-period
              Set grace times for users/groups. Times block-grace  and  inode-
              grace are specified in seconds.

       -T, --edit-times
              Alter   times   for  individual  user/group  when  softlimit  is
              enforced. Times block-grace and  inode-grace  are  specified  in
              seconds or can be string 'unset'.

       -a, --all
              Go  through  all filesystems with quota in /etc/mtab and perform

       block-softlimit and block-hardlimit are  interpreted  as  multiples  of
       kibibyte (1024 bytes) blocks by default.  Symbols K, M, G, and T can be
       appended to numeric value to express kibibytes,  mebibytes,  gibibytes,
       and tebibytes.

       inode-softlimit  and inode-hardlimit are interpreted literally. Symbols
       k, m, g, and t can be appended to numeric value to express multiples of
       10^3, 10^6, 10^9, and 10^12 inodes.

       To  disable  a  quota,  set the corresponding parameter to 0. To change
       quotas for several filesystems, invoke once for each filesystem.

       Only the super-user may edit quotas.


       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           mounted filesystem table
