- Print group quotas for the group of which the user is a member.

-u flags to view the limits of groups of which they

quota tries to report the quotas of all
mounted filesystems. If the filesystem is mounted via NFS, it will attempt
to contact the rpc.rquotad(8) daemon on the NFS server. For FFS filesystems,
quotas must be turned on in /etc/fstab.
