       setquota  is  a  command line quota editor.  The filesystem, user/group
       name and new quotas for this filesystem can be specified on the command

       -r     Edit  also  remote quota use rpc.rquotad on remote server to set
              quota. This option is available only if quota  tools  were  com-
              piled with enabled support for setting quotas over RPC.

       -F quotaformat
              Perform  setting  for specified format (ie. don’t perform format
              autodetection).  Possible format names are:  vfsold  (version  1
              quota),  vfsv0  (version  2  quota),  rpc  (quota over NFS), xfs
              (quota on XFS filesystem)

       -u     Set user quotas for named user. This is the default.

       -g     Set group quotas for named group.

       -p protoname
              Use quota settings of user or group protoname to set  the  quota
              for the named user or group.

       -b     Read  information to set from stdin (input format is name block-
              softlimit block-hardlimit inode-softlimit inode-hardlimit ).

       -t     Set grace times for users/groups. Times block-grace  and  inode-
              grace are specified in seconds.

       -T     Alter   times   for  individual  user/group  when  softlimit  is
              enforced. Times block-grace and  inode-grace  are  specified  in
              seconds or can be string ’unset’.

       -a     Go  through  all filesystems with quota in /etc/mtab and perform

       To disable a quota, set the coresponding parameter to 0. To change quo-
       tas for several filesystems, invoke once for each filesystem.

       Only the super-user may edit quotas.
