       ] [ -a adminsfile ]


       warnquota checks the disk quota for each filesystem and mails a warning
       message  to  those users who have reached their softlimit.  It is typi-
       cally run via cron(8).

       -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)

       -q quotatab
              Use  quotatab  instead  of  /etc/quotatab  as  file  with device
              description strings (see example file for syntax).

       -c configfile
              Use configfile instead of /etc/warnquota.conf  as  configuration
              file (see example file for syntax).

       -a adminsfile
              Use  adminsfile  instead  of  /etc/quotagrpadmins as a file with
              administrators of the groups.

       -u     check whether users are not exceeding quotas (default).

       -g     check whether groups are  not  exceeding  quotas.  If  group  is
              exceeding  quota  a  mail  is  sent  to  the  user  specified in

       -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.

       -d     don’t attach quota report in email.
