7.1.5. Assigning Quotas per Group

Quotas can also be assigned on a per-group basis. For example, to set a group quota for the devel group (the group must exist prior to setting the group quota), use the command:

edquota -g devel

This command displays the existing quota for the group in the text editor:

 Disk quotas for group devel (gid 505): Filesystem blocks soft hard inodes soft hard /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol02 440400 0 0 37418 0 0 

Modify the limits, then save the file.

To verify that the group quota has been set, use the command:

quota -g devel
