quota_nld man page

quota_nld — quota netlink message daemon


quota_nld [[ -D | -C ][ -F ][ -b ]]


quota_nld listens on netlink socket and processes received quota warnings. By default quota_nld forwards warning messages to both the system's DBUS (so that the desktop manager can display a dialog) and the last-accessed terminal of the user to whom each warning is directed. Either of these destinations can be disabled with the -D and -C options, respectively.

In the case of the user's terminal, quota messages about falling below the hard and soft limits are not sent unless the -b option is specified. In the case of the DBUS, all quota messages are sent.

Note, that you have to enable the kernel support for sending quota messages over netlink (in Filesystems->Quota menu).


-V, --version

Show version of quota tools and exit.

-h, --help

Show a usage message and exit.

-D, --no-dbus

Do not forward quota warnings to DBUS.

-C, --no-console

Do not print quota warnings to the user's last-accessed terminal.

-b, --print-below

If quota warnings are printed to users' terminals, include messages about falling below their hard and soft limits.

-F, --foreground

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