QUOTA(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		      QUOTA(1)

     quota — display disk usage and limits

     quota [-g] [-u] [-v | -q]
     quota [-u] [-v | -q] user
     quota [-g] [-v | -q] group

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


     -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

     -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 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 reports the quotas of all the filesystems listed in /etc/fstab.  If
     quota exits with a non-zero status, one or more filesystems are over

     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

     The quota command appeared in 4.2BSD.
