NAME

vquota -- VFS quota system utility

SYNOPSIS

vquota [-D | -h] command argument

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents the vquota utility which provides functions for managing virtual file system accounting and quotas. To use the vquota utility, the vfs.quota_enabled tunable needs to be set in loader.conf(5). The following options are available: -D Debug flag, show raw messages sent to and received from kernel -h "Human-readable" output. Use unit suffixes: Byte, Kilobyte, Megabyte, Gigabyte, Terabyte and Petabyte in order to reduce the number of digits to four or fewer. -n Show raw user and group ids. Normally vquota attempts to resolve and display full user and group names. The commands are as follows: check directory Reports the space (in bytes) occupied by files names located in the directory hierarchy present under directory. lsfs List mounted file systems having space accounting enabled show mount_point Show file size usage and quota limits for the file system mounted under mount_point. The information is broken down by uid and gid and is expressed by default in bytes. sync mount_point Initialize in one go the usage counters for the filesystem mounted under mount_point with real usage data. This command scans an entire filesystem directory hierarchy and may be slow to run limit mount_point size Set a global quota of size bytes for the filesystem mounted under mount_point. ulim mount_point user size Set a quota of size bytes for the filesystem mounted under mount_point and the specified user. glim mount_point group size Set a quota of size bytes for the filesystem mounted under mount_point and the specified group. A limit of 0 effectively means checks are disabled.

EXAMPLES

The following is an example of a typical usage of the vquota command: vquota show /mnt/data
