RQUOTAD(8)               System Manager's Manual              RQUOTAD(8)

NAME         top

       rpc.rquotad - remote quota server

SYNOPSIS         top

       /usr/sbin/rpc.rquotad [ -FI ] [ -p port ] [ -s | -S ] [ -x path ]

       /usr/sbin/rpc.rquotad [ -h | -V ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       rpc.rquotad is an rpc(3) server which returns quotas for a user
       of a local filesystem which is mounted by a remote machine over
       the NFS.  It also allows setting of quotas on NFS mounted
       filesystem (if configured during compilation and allowed by a
       command line option -S).  The results are used by quota(1) to
       display user quotas for remote filesystems and by edquota(8) to
       set quotas on remote filesystems.  rquotad daemon uses tcp-
       wrappers library (under service name rquotad) which allows you to
       specify hosts allowed/disallowed to use the daemon (see
       hosts.allow(5) manpage for more information). The rquotad daemon
       is normally started at boot time from the system startup scripts.

OPTIONS         top

       -h, --help
              Show program usage and exit.  -V, --version Show version
              of quota tools.

       -s, --no-setquota
              Don't allow setting of quotas (default). This option is
              available only if utilities were compiled with the
              rpcsetquota option.

       -S, --setquota
              Allow setting of quotas. This option is available only if
              utilities were compiled with the rpcsetquota option.

       -F, --foreground
              Run daemon in foreground (may be useful for debugging
              purposes).

       -I, --autofs
              Do not ignore autofs mountpoints.

       -p port, --port port
              Listen on alternate port port.

       -x path, --xtab path
              Set an alternative file with NFSD export table. This file
              is used to determine pseudoroot of NFSv4 exports. The
              pseudoroot is then prepended to each relative path (i.e. a
              path not beginning by '/') received in a quota RPC
              request.

FILES         top

       aquota.user or aquota.group
              quota file at the filesystem root (version 2 quota, non-
              XFS filesystems)
       quota.user or quota.group
              quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota, non-
              XFS filesystems)
       /etc/mtab
              default filesystems
