  quota	[-a] [-u] [username] [-qv]

  quota	[-a] [-U] [userID] [-qv]

OPTIONS

  -a  Displays quota information for all mounted file systems: those in	the
      /etc/fstab file and those	mounted	manually or with automount. The	-q
      option takes precedence over the -a option.

  -g [groupname]
      When specified without the groupname argument, displays group quotas
      for groups of which you are a member. Displays group quotas for the
      group when you specify groupname.

  -G [groupID]
      When specified without the groupID argument, displays group quotas for
      groups of	which you are a	member.	Displays group quotas for the group
      when you specify groupID.

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

  -U [userID]
      Displays only your user quotas (the default) when	specified without the
      userID argument.	Displays user quotas for the user when you specify
      userID.

  -q  Displays information only	for file systems that have disk	quotas and
      where usage is over quota. Takes precedence over the -v and -a options.

  -v  Displays quota information for all mounted file systems that are speci-
      fied in the /etc/fstab file.  Quota information is displayed for each
      file system whether or not quotas	are enabled for	it.  The -q option
      takes precedence over the	-v option.





DESCRIPTION

  The quota command displays disk space	usage and limits. Disk quotas are
  displayed as 1 kilobyte blocks.

  By default, only your	user quotas are	displayed.  If you use the -g or the
  -G option without an argument, the quota command displays group quotas for
  groups of which you are a member.

  Unless you use the -v	option,	the quota command reports only on file sys-
  tems listed in /etc/fstab that have disk quotas and under which you have
  files. If quota exits	with a status of 1, one	or more	file systems are over
  quota.  If quota exits with a	status of 2, there are system errors.

NOTES

  The term file	system represents either a UFS file system or an AdvFS
  fileset.

  Do not use both a user and a group option in the same	command.

RESTRICTIONS

  You must be the root user to use the optional	username or userID argument
  to view information about another user, or to	use the	optional groupname or
  groupID argument to view information about a group to	which you do not
  belong.
