NAME
  quota - Displays disk usage and limits

SYNOPSIS

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

  The quota command displays users' disk usage and limits.

DESCRIPTION

  By default only your user quota are printed.	If you specify -g, quota
  displays group quotas for the groups of which you are a member.  Only a
  user with superuser authority can use the optional user argument with the
  -u flag to view information about another user, or use the optional group
  argument with the -g flag to view information about a group to which that
  user does not belong.

  Unless you use the -v flag, The quota command reports only on file systems
  listed in /etc/fstab that have disk quotas.  If quota exits with a nonzero
  status, one or more file systems are over quota.

  Quotas are given in block sizes of 1024 byte blocks.

FLAGS

  -g group
      Displays group quotas for groups of which you are a member, in addition
      to your user quotas, when specified without the group argument.
      Displays group quotas for group when you specify group.

  -q  Prints information only for file systems where usage is over quota.
      Takes precedence over the -v flag.

  -u user
      Displays only your user quotas (the default) when specified without the
      user argument.  Displays user quotas for user when you specify user.

  -v  Displays quota information for all mounted file systems, regardless of
      whether the user has any files on a given file system, or whether quo-
      tas are enabled on that file system.  The -q flag takes precedence over
      the -v flag.
