Every user or group can check their disk quota with the command quota. This command produces a report that contains information for all file systems listed in the /etc/fstab. Give the command quota -u (for user quota) or quota -g (for group quota) or a combination to obtain this information. If no quotas are set, the command quota -u results in the following output:
Disk quotas for dsnjaro (uid 503):none
If quotas have been set, the output looks like:
Disk quotas for user dsnjaro (uid 503): File system blocks quota limit grace files quota limit grace /dev/hda3 49 100 110 30 0 0Only the system administrator can use either of the commands:
quota -u < quota <-g <group-id>Quota is working very well for me in my work, where there are approximately 300 users on our system.
