quotacheck - quota consistency checker for HFS file systems
/usr/sbin/quotacheck [-F hfs] [-V] [-pPv] filesystem ...
/usr/sbin/quotacheck [-F hfs] [-V] [-pPv] -a
The quotacheck command examines each HFS file system, builds a table
of current disk usage, and compares this table against that stored in
the disk quota file for the file system. If any inconsistencies are
detected, both the quota file and the current system copy of the
incorrect quotas are updated.
quotacheck expects each file system to be checked to have a file named
quotas in the root directory. If none is present, quotacheck reports
an error and ignores the file system. quotacheck is normally run at
mount time from start up scripts.
filesystem represents a mount point or block special device (e.g.,
quotacheck recognizes the following options:
-F hfs Specify the file system type hfs.
-V Echo the completed command line, but perform no
other action. The command line is generated by
incorporating the user-specified options and other
information derived from /etc/fstab. This option
allows the user to verify the command line.
-a Obtain list of file systems to check from
/etc/fstab. Only mounted file systems of type hfs
and rw (or default) with the quota option are
-v Indicate the calculated disk quotas for each user
on a particular file system. quotacheck normally
reports only those quotas that are modified.
-p Check file systems in parallel as allowed by equal
values in the pass number field in /etc/fstab.
-P Preen file systems, checking only those with
invalid quota statistics (quotaoff and edquota
commands can invalidate quota statistics as
discussed in quota(5) - see quotaoff(1M) and
edquota(1M)). Also checks in parallel as in -p
