       /usr/sbin/repquota [ -vsiug ] [ -c | -C ] [ -t | -n ] [ -F
       format-name ] filesystem...

       /usr/sbin/repquota [ -avtsiug ] [ -c | -C ] [ -t | -n ]  [
       -F format-name ]


       repquota prints a summary of the disc usage and quotas for
       the specified file systems.  For  each  user  the  current
       number  of  files  and  amount  of space (in kilobytes) is
       printed, along with any quotas  created  with  edquota(8).
       As  repquota  has  to translate ids of all users/groups to
       names (unless option -n was specified) it may take a while
       to  print all the information. To make translating as fast
       as possible repquota tries to detect (by reading /etc/nss­
       witch.conf)  whether  entries are stored in standard plain
       text file or in database and either translates  chunks  of
       1024  names  or  each  name individually. You can override
       this autodetection by -c or -C options.


       -a     Report on all filesystems indicated in /etc/mtab to
              be read-write with quotas.

       -v     Report  all  quotas,  even if there is no usage. Be
              also more verbose about quotafile information.

       -c     Cache entries to report and translate uids/gids  to
              names   in   big   chunks  by  scanning  all  users
              (default). This is good (fast) behaviour when using
              /etc/passwd file.

       -C     Translate  individual  entries. This is faster when
              you have users stored in database.

       -t     Truncate user/group names longer than 9 characters.
              This  results  in  nicer output when there are such

       -n     Don't resolve UIDs/GIDs to names. This can  speedup
              printing a lot.

       -s     Try to report used space, number of used inodes and
              limits in more appropriate units than  the  default

       -i     Ignore mountpoints mounted by automounter.

       -F format-name
              Report  quota  for specified format (ie. don't per­
              form format autodetection).  Possible format  names
                           (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           default filesystems
       /etc/passwd         default set of users
       /etc/group          default set of groups
