QUOTACHECK(8)               System Manager's Manual              QUOTACHECK(8)



NAME
       quotacheck - file system quota consistency checker

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/quotacheck [ -v ] [ -p ] filesystem...

       /usr/etc/quotacheck [ -apv ]

DESCRIPTION
       quotacheck  examines  each  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 (the latter only occurs if an active file system is checked).

       quotacheck  expects each file system to be checked to have a quota file
       named quotas in the root directory.  If  none  is  present,  quotacheck
       will ignore the file system.

       quotacheck  is  normally  run at boot time from the /etc/rc.local file,
       see rc(8), before enabling disk quotas with quotaon(8).

       quotacheck accesses the raw device in calculating the actual disk usage
       for  each  user.   Thus,  the  file systems checked should be quiescent
       while quotacheck is running.

OPTIONS
       -v     Indicate the calculated disk quotas for each user on a  particu-
              lar  file system.  quotacheck normally reports only those quotas
              modified.

       -a     Check all the file systems indicated in /etc/fstab to  be  read-
              write with disk quotas.

       -p     Run parallel passes on the required file systems, using the pass
              numbers in /etc/fstab in an identical fashion to fsck(8).

FILES
       quotas              quota file at the file system root
       /etc/mtab           mounted file systems
       /etc/fstab          default file systems
