SYNOPSIS

setquota [-u] [-f fs] [-bhval] [-bsval] [-ihval] [-isval] user ... setquota [-g] [-f fs] [-bhval] [-bsval] [-ihval] [-isval] group ...

DESCRIPTION

Setquota sets block and inode quotas for groups or users.

Options:

-u Specify that operations should be performed on users. The -u flag is the default.
-g Specify that operations should be performed on groups.
-f fs Specifies the filesystem to set quota information for. If fs does not have quotas enabled an error will result.

Getquota doesn’t operate on anything but UFS filesystems.

-bh val
  Block hard quota.
-bs val
  Block soft quota.
-ih val
  Inode hard quota.
-is val
  Inode soft quota.

Block sizes are in the form of val X where X is {K,k} for kilobytes or {M,m} for megabytes. The default unit is kilobytes.

Inode sizes have no modifiers. Cope.

FILES

quota.user located at the filesystem root with user quotas
quota.group
  located at the filesystem root with group quotas
/etc/fstab to find filesystem names and locations

BUGS

For some reason the grace period stuff doesn’t work. Large portions of the mklist() code need to be rewritten. I’ll do this as I have time. This man page needs to be rewritten.
