repquota - summarize quotas for a filesystem
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 quota limits set with
In the second column repquota prints two characters marking which limits are
exceeded. If user is over his space softlimit or reaches his space hardlimit in
case softlimit is unset, the first character is '+'. Otherwise the character
printed is '-'. The second character denotes the state of inode usage
has to translate ids of all users/groups/projects to names (unless option
was specified) so it may take a while to
print all the information. To make translating as fast as possible
tries to detect (by reading
whether entries are stored in standard plain text file or in a database and either
translates chunks of 1024 names or each name individually. You can override this
- -a, --all
Report on all filesystems indicated in
to be read-write with quotas.
- -v, --verbose
Report all quotas, even if there is no usage. Be also more verbose about quotafile
- -c, --cache
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-cache
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[=units]
Try to report used space, number of used inodes and limits in more appropriate
units than the default ones. Units can be also specified explicitely by an
optional argument in format [
] where the first character specifies space units and the second character
specifies inode units.
- -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:
Original quota format with 16-bit UIDs / GIDs,
Quota format with 32-bit UIDs / GIDs, 64-bit space usage, 32-bit inode usage and limits,
Quota format with 64-bit quota limits and usage,
(quota on XFS filesystem)
- -g, --group
Report quotas for groups.
- -P, --project
Report quotas for projects.
- -u, --user
Report quotas for users. This is the default.
- -O, --output=format-name
Output quota report in the specified format.
Possible format names are:
The default format, optimized for console viewing
Comma-separated values, a text file with the columns delimited by commas
Output is XML encoded, useful for processing with XSLT
Only the super-user may view quotas which are not their own.
- 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)
default set of users
default set of groups
