quot - display disk usage by user/group/size and age
quot [-cfgkNUvX] [files]
While df and du and ls display disk usage by filesystem, directory, and
file, quot displays disk usage by user, group, or size then (option-
ally) by age. Files from 30 to 60, or 60 to 90, or older than 90 days
are separated into three columns.
If the program is called as quot then no options are forced.
Visit all mounted filesystems (not implemented).
Display a histogram of file sizes.
Display number of files, in addition to total space.
Display totals per group, rather than per login.
Print a brief help message.
Report sizes in kb (1024byte blocks rather than 512byte blocks).

Output the idle space per login or group (under -g).
Show version information.
Honor filesystem boundaries, do not cross onto another device.
quot -vf /home/mages
Output a table of logins on /home/mages with the space used bro-
ken out into the 30, 60, 90 day totals.
quot -vc /usr/local
Help find the correct block and fragment size for a new
quot -Xvf /
See who is filling the root filesystem.
quot -gvf /home/common
Look at this filesystem by group. This can help when files are
actually grouped by project.
Not exactly like the original quot, but I like it better.
The old-school version didn't need to run as the superuser, as it could
just read the raw disks with access to group "operator" or "disk": but
walking the block device is so gross. Also there are way too many
filesystem types now days to code them all.
