QUOT(8)                 OpenBSD System Manager's Manual                QUOT(8)

     quot - display disk space occupied by each user

     quot [-acfhknv] [filesystem ...]

     Quot is used to gather statistics about the disk usage for each local us-

     The following options are available:

     -a      Include statistics for all mounted filesystems.

     -c      Display three columns containing number of blocks per file, num-
             ber of files in this category, and aggregate total of blocks in
             files with this or lower size.

     -f      For each user, display count of files and space occupied.

     -h      Estimate the number of blocks in each file based on its size.
             Despite that this doesn't give the correct resuls (it doesn't ac-
             count for the holes in files), this option isn't any faster and
             thus is discouraged.

     -k      By default, all sizes are reported in 512-byte block counts.  The
             -k options causes the numbers to be reported in kilobyte counts.

     -n      Given a list of inodes (plus some optional data on each line) in
             the standard input, for each file print out the owner (plus the
             remainder of the input line). This is traditionally used in the

                   ncheck filesystem | sort +0n | quot -n filesystem

             to get a report of files and their owners.

     -v      In addition to the default output, display the number of files
             not accessed within 30, 60 and 90 days.

     BLOCKSIZE  If the environment variable BLOCKSIZE is set, and the option
                is not specified, the block counts will be displayed in units
                of that size block.
