df does only reports the disk free space. How can I get my allowed free space?

Take a look at the quota command here:

http://linux.die.net/man/1/quota


quota

For example:

quota -u user1

System response:

Disk quotas for user user1 (uid 501):
     Filesystem  blocks   quota   limit   grace files   quota   limit  grace    
     /dev/hda6     992   50000   55000              71   10000   11000

quota report

Report on all users over quota limits:

quota -q

Quota summary report:

repquota -a

Report for user quotas on device /dev/hda5

user1     --    1944       0       0            120     0     0    

No limits shown with this user as limits are set to 0.

  • Is there a way to print in megabytes or gigabytes instead of bytes?

If quotas are set, "quota" command shows the details.

quota -v

    Nothing returns by quota command through SSH. Does it mean it was not set?

  • @Ahmad There can still be a quota system active that doesn't use the interface quota is using. (I previously gave the example of cephfs here but I just see that the ceph cluster I've user access to doesn't have the quota command installed so it could be simply that.) Feb 24 '20 at 11:13

try this command

repquota -sa | grep -v "0       0"

This will give details report for all user-driven accounts like:

/home]# repquota -sa | grep -v "0       0"
