7.1.6. Setting the Grace Period for Soft Limits

If soft limits are set for a given quota (whether inode or block and for either users or groups) the grace period, or amount of time a soft limit can be exceeded, should be set with the command:

edquota -t

While other edquota commands operate on a particular user's or group's quota, the -t option operates on every filesystem with quotas enabled.
