QUOTA(1)                   OpenBSD Reference 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.

     The options are as follows:

     -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 al-

     -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.rquo-
     tad(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.

     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.
