repquota - summarize quotas for a filesystem


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


repquota prints a summary of the disc usage and quotas for the speci- fied file systems. For each user the current number of files and amount of space (in kilobytes) is printed, along with any quotas cre- ated 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 pos- sible 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 Report on all filesystems indicated in /etc/mtab to be read- write with quotas. -v Report all quotas, even if there is no usage. Be also more ver- bose about quotafile information. -c 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 Translate individual entries. This is faster when you have users stored in database. -t Truncate user/group names longer than 9 characters. This results in nicer output when there are such names. -n Don't resolve UIDs/GIDs to names. This can speedup printing a lot. -s Try to report used space, number of used inodes and limits in more appropriate units than the default ones. -i Ignore mountpoints mounted by automounter. -F format-name Report quota for specified format (ie. don't perform format autodetection). Possible format names are: vfsold (version 1 quota), vfsv0 (version 2 quota), xfs (quota on XFS filesystem) -g Report quotas for groups. -u Report quotas for users. This is the default. Only the super-user may view quotas which are not their own.
