How to check the quotas

As shown below, you can check amount of used disk space using quota command. The following output example shows that 180 MBytes is already used.

% quota -Qs
Disk quotas for user ua000000 (uid 000000):
     Filesystem  blocks   quota   limit   grace   files   quota   limit   grace
hds00:/home/md000
                   180M       0   3072M            4167       0       0

The column "blocks" , which is 180MByte in the above example, indicates how much space you use. The column "limit" indicates the storage limit, which is 3072MByte.
