repquota - summarize quotas for a filesystem  


/usr/sbin/repquota [ -vspiug ] [ -c | -C ] [ -t | -n ] [ -F format-name ] filesystem...

/usr/sbin/repquota [ -avtpsiug ] [ -c | -C ] [ -t | -n ] [ -F format-name ]  


repquota prints a summary of the disc usage and quotas for the specified file systems. For each user the current number of files and amount of space (in kilobytes) is printed, along with any quotas created with edquota(8). As repquota has to translate ids of all users/groups to names (unless option -n was specified) it may take a while to print all the information. To make translating as fast as possible repquota tries to detect (by reading /etc/nsswitch.conf) whether entries are stored in standard plain text file or in database and either translates chunks of 1024 names or each name individually. You can override this autodetection by -c or -C options.  


-a, --all
Report on all filesystems indicated in /etc/mtab to be read-write with quotas.
-v, --verbose
Report all quotas, even if there is no usage. Be also more verbose about quotafile information.
-c, --batch-translation
Cache entries to report and translate uids/gids to names in big chunks by scanning all users (default). This is good (fast) behaviour when using /etc/passwd file.
-C, --no-batch-translation
Translate individual entries. This is faster when you have users stored in database.
-t, --truncate-names
Truncate user/group names longer than 9 characters. This results in nicer output when there are such names.
-n, --no-names
Don't resolve UIDs/GIDs to names. This can speedup printing a lot.
-s, --human-readable
Try to report used space, number of used inodes and limits in more appropriate units than the default ones.
-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.
-F, --format=format-name
Report 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, xfs (quota on XFS filesystem)
-g, --group
Report quotas for groups.
-u, --user
Report quotas for users. This is the default.

Only the super-user may view quotas which are not their own.

quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota, non-XFS filesystems)
