NAME

vquotacheck - Checks fileset quota consistency  

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sbin/vquotacheck [-guv] fileset...

/usr/sbin/vquotacheck -a [-guv] [-lnumber]


 

OPTIONS

Checks all filesets identified in /etc/fstab as read/write with disk quotas. Checks group quotas only. Specifies the number of times to perform disk quota checking. Checks user quotas only. Reports discrepancies between the calculated and recorded disk quotas.
 

OPERANDS

Specifies an AdvFS fileset. You can specify a fileset by entering either the fileset name that is associated with a mount point in the /etc/fstab file or by entering the name of the file domain, a pound sign character (#), and the name of the fileset. For example, root_domain#root.
 

DESCRIPTION

Operations supported by the vquotacheck command are also supported by the quotacheck command. See quotacheck(8). The vquotacheck command is supported only for backward compatibility with operating system versions earlier than DIGITAL UNIX Version 4.0 and will be retired in a future release of the product.

The vquotacheck command examines each specified fileset, builds a table of current disk usage, and compares this table against that stored in the disk quota file for the fileset. If any inconsistencies are detected, both the quota file and the current system copy of the incorrect quotas are updated. Each fileset must be mounted with quotas enabled.

The vquotacheck command runs parallel passes on filesets using the number specified in the fsck field of the /etc/fstab file. The vquotacheck command only checks filesets with pass number 2 in the /etc/fstab file. A fileset with no pass number or a number less than 2 will not be checked.

The vquotacheck command checks only filesets that have the advfs rq, userquota, or groupquota option specified in the /etc/fstab file.

By default both user and group quotas listed in the /etc/fstab file are checked. Use the -g option to specify that only group quotas be checked; use the -u option to specify that only user quotas be checked.

The vquotacheck command does not display activity information while checking filesets. Use the -v option to report inconsistencies found or procedures performed by the vquotacheck command.

The filesets checked should be quiescent while the vquotacheck command is running.
