3.5.2. Displaying Quota Limits and Usage

Quota limits and current usage can be displayed for a specific user or group using the gfs2_quota get command. The entire contents of the quota file can also be displayed using the gfs2_quota list command, in which case all IDs with a non-zero hard limit, warn limit, or value are listed.

Usage

Displaying Quota Limits for a User
gfs2_quota get -u User -f MountPoint
Displaying Quota Limits for a Group
gfs2_quota get -g Group -f MountPoint
Displaying Entire Quota File
gfs2_quota list -f MountPoint
User
A user ID to display information about a specific user. It can be either a user name from the password file or the UID number.
Group
A group ID to display information about a specific group. It can be either a group name from the group file or the GID number.
MountPoint
Specifies the GFS2 file system to which the actions apply.

Command Output

GFS2 quota information from the gfs2_quota command is displayed as follows:
user User: limit:LimitSize warn:WarnSize value:Value

group Group: limit:LimitSize warn:WarnSize value:Value

The LimitSize, WarnSize, and Value numbers (values) are in units of megabytes by default. Adding the -k, -s, or -b flags to the command line change the units to kilobytes, sectors, or file system blocks, respectively.
User
A user name or ID to which the data is associated.
Group
A group name or ID to which the data is associated.
LimitSize
The hard limit set for the user or group. This value is zero if no limit has been set.
Value
The actual amount of disk space used by the user or group.

Comments

When displaying quota information, the gfs2_quota command does not resolve UIDs and GIDs into names if the -n option is added to the command line.
Space allocated to GFS2's hidden files can be left out of displayed values for the root UID and GID by adding the -d option to the command line. This is useful when trying to match the numbers from gfs2_quota with the results of a du command.

Examples

This example displays quota information for all users and groups that have a limit set or are using any disk space on file system /mygfs2.
gfs2_quota list -f /mygfs2
This example displays quota information in sectors for group users on file system /mygfs2.
gfs2_quota get -g users -f /mygfs2 -s
