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 systems 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.
