Linux Disk Quotas

Add the quota options to the vfstab:

LABEL=/home       /home              ext3    defaults,usrquota,grpquota 1 2

Remount the filesystem (rebooting will work).

Initialize the quotas:

# quotacheck -avcmug

Edit quotas:

# edquota user
# edquota -g group

Report disk usage:

# repquota /filesystem

Periodically you should check things to make sure they are OK (ie from cron):

# quotacheck -avmug

As always, man is your friend.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
