       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -guvsil | q ]
       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -uvsil | q ] user
       quota [ -F format-name ] [ -gvsil | q ] group


       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-name
              Show  quota for specified format (ie. don't perform
              format autodetection).  Possible format names  are:
              vfsold  (version 1 quota), vfsv0 (version 2 quota),
              rpc (quota over NFS), xfs (quota on XFS filesystem)

       -g     Print  group quotas for the group of which the user
              is a member.  The optional

       -u     flag is equivalent to the default.

       -v     will display quotas on filesystems where no storage
              is allocated.

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

       -i     ignore mountpoints mounted by automounter

       -l     report quotas only on local filesystems (ie. ignore
              NFS mounted filesystems).

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

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

       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.
