QUOTAON(8)              OpenBSD System Manager's Manual             QUOTAON(8)

NAME
     quotaon, quotaoff - turn filesystem quotas on and off

SYNOPSIS
     quotaon [-g] [-u] [-v] filesystem [...]
     quotaon [-g] [-u] [-v] -a

     quotaoff [-g] [-u] [-v] filesystem [...]
     quotaoff [-g] [-u] [-v] -a

DESCRIPTION
     quotaon announces to the system that disk quotas should be enabled on one
     or more filesystems.  quotaoff announces to the system that the specified
     filesystems should have any disk quotas turned off.  The filesystems
     specified must have entries in /etc/fstab and be mounted.  quotaon ex-
     pects each filesystem to have quota files named quota.user and
     quota.group which are located at the root of the associated file system.
     These defaults may be overridden in /etc/fstab.  By default both user and
     group quotas are enabled.

     The options are as follows:

     -a      If the -a flag is supplied in place of any filesystem names,
             quotaon/quotaoff will enable/disable all the filesystems indicat-
             ed in /etc/fstab to be read-write with disk quotas.  By default
             only the types of quotas listed in /etc/fstab are enabled.

     -g      Only group quotas listed in /etc/fstab should be enabled/dis-
             abled.

     -u      Only user quotas listed in /etc/fstab should be enabled/disabled.

     -v      Causes quotaon and quotaoff to print a message for each filesys-
             tem where quotas are turned on or off.

     Specifying both -g and -u is equivalent to the default.

FILES
     quota.user   at the filesystem root with user quotas
     quota.group  at the filesystem root with group quotas
     /etc/fstab   filesystem table
