Quotaon announces to the system that disc quotas should be enabled on
one or more file systems. The file systems specified must have entries
in /etc/fstab and be mounted at the time. The file system quota files
must be present in the root directory of the specified file system and
be named quotas. The optional argument -v causes quotaon to print a
message for each file system where quotas are turned on. If, instead
of a list of file systems, a -a argument is give to quotaon, all file
systems in /etc/fstab marked read-write with quotas will have their
quotas turned on. This is normally used at boot time to enable quotas.
Quotaoff announces to the system that file systems specified should
have any disc quotas turned off. As above, the -v forces a verbose
message for each file system affected; and the -a option forces all
file systems in /etc/fstab to have their quotas disabled.
These commands update the status field of devices located in /etc/mtab
to indicate when quotas are on or off for each file system.
