DESCRIPTION
       quota displays users' disk usage and limits.  By default only the user
       quotas are printed. By default space usage and limits are shown in
       kbytes (and are named blocks for historical reasons).

       quota reports the quotas of all the filesystems listed in /etc/mtab.
       For filesystems that are NFS-mounted a call to the rpc.rquotad on the
       server machine is performed to get the information.

OPTIONS
       -F, --format=format-name
              Show quota for specified format (ie. don't perform format
              autodetection).  Possible format names are: vfsold Original
              quota format with 16-bit UIDs / GIDs, vfsv0 Quota format with
              32-bit UIDs / GIDs, 64-bit space usage, 32-bit inode usage and
              limits, vfsv1 Quota format with 64-bit quota limits and usage,
              rpc (quota over NFS), xfs (quota on XFS filesystem)

       -g, --group
              Print group quotas for the group of which the user is a member.
              The optional group argument(s) restricts the display to the
              specified group(s).

       -u, --user
              flag is equivalent to the default.

       -P, --project
              Print project quotas for the specified project.

       -v, --verbose
              will display quotas on filesystems where no storage is
              allocated.

       -s, --human-readable[=units]
              option will make quota(1) try to choose units for showing
              limits, used space and used inodes. Units can be also specified
              explicitely by an optional argument in format [ kgt ],[ kgt ]
              where the first character specifies space units and the second
              character specifies inode units.

       --always-resolve
              Always try to translate user / group name to uid / gid even if
              the name is composed of digits only.

       -p, --raw-grace
              When user is in grace period, report time in seconds since epoch
              when his grace time runs out (or has run out). Field is '0' when
              no grace time is in effect.  This is especially useful when
              parsing output by a script.

       -i, --no-autofs
              ignore mountpoints mounted by automounter

       -l, --local-only
              report quotas only on local filesystems (ie. ignore NFS mounted
              filesystems).

       -A, --all-nfs
              report quotas for all NFS filesystems even if they report to be
              on the same device.

       -f, --filesystem-list
              report quotas only for filesystems specified on command line.

       -m, --no-mixed-pathnames
              Currently, pathnames of NFSv4 mountpoints are sent without
              leading slash in the path.  rpc.rquotad uses this to recognize
              NFSv4 mounts and properly prepend pseudoroot of NFS filesystem
              to the path. If you specify this option, quota will always send
              paths with a leading slash. This can be useful for legacy
              reasons but be aware that quota over RPC will stop working if
              you are using new rpc.rquotad.

       -q, --quiet
              Print a more terse message, containing only information on
              filesystems where usage is over quota.

       -Q, --quiet-refuse
              Do not print error message if connection to rpc.rquotad is
              refused (usually this happens when rpc.rquotad is not running on
              the server).

       -w, --no-wrap
              Do not wrap the line if the device name is too long. This can be
              useful when parsing the output of quota(1) by a script.

       --show-mntpoint
              Show also mount point as a filesystem identification.

       --hide-device
              Do not show device name in a filesystem identification.

       Specifying both -g and -u displays both the user quotas and the group
       quotas (for the user).

       Only the super-user may use the -u flag and the optional user argument
       to view the limits of other users. Also viewing of project quota usage
       and limits is limited to super-user only.  Non-super-users can use the
       -g flag and optional group argument to view only the limits of groups
       of which they are members.

       The -q flag takes precedence over the -v flag.

DIAGNOSTICS
       If quota exits with a non-zero status, one or more filesystems are over
       quota.

FILES
       aquota.user  or  aquota.group
                           quota file at the filesystem root (version 2 quota,
                           non-XFS filesystems)
       quota.user  or  quota.group
                           quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota,
                           non-XFS filesystems)
       /etc/mtab           default filesystems
