+.Sh DESCRIPTION
+.Nm Quotacheck
+examines each filesystem,
+builds a table of current disk usage,
+and compares this table against that recorded
+in the disk quota file for the filesystem.
+If any inconsistencies are detected, both the
+quota file and the current system copy of the
+incorrect quotas are updated (the latter only
+occurs if an active filesystem is checked).
+By default both user and group quotas are checked.
+.Pp
+Available options:
+.Bl -tag -width Ds
+.It Fl a
+If the
+.Fl a
+flag is supplied in place of any filesystem names,
+.Nm quotacheck
+will check all the filesystems indicated in
+.Pa /etc/fstab
+to be read-write with disk quotas.
+By default only the types of quotas listed in
+.Pa /etc/fstab
+are checked.
+.It Fl g
+Only group quotas listed in
+.Pa /etc/fstab
+are to be checked.
+.It Fl u
+Only user quotas listed in
+.Pa /etc/fstab
+are to be checked.
+.It Fl v
+.Nm quotacheck
+reports discrepancies between the
+calculated and recorded disk quotas.
+.El
+.Pp
+Specifying both
+.Fl g
+and
+.Fl u
+is equivalent to the default.
+Parallel passes are run on the filesystems required,
+using the pass numbers in
+.Pa /etc/fstab
+in an identical fashion to
+.Xr fsck 8 .
+.Pp
+Normally
+.Nm quotacheck
+operates silently.
+.Pp
+.Nm Quotacheck
+expects each filesystem to be checked to have a
+quota files named
+.Pa quota.user
+and
+.Pa quota.group
+which are located at the root of the associated file system.
+These defaults may be overridden in
+.Pa /etc/fstab .
+If a file is not present,
+.Nm quotacheck
+will create it.
+.Pp
+.Nm Quotacheck
+is normally run at boot time from the
+.Pa /etc/rc.local
+file, see
+.Xr rc 8 ,
+before enabling disk quotas with
+.Xr quotaon 8 .
+.Pp
+.Nm Quotacheck
+accesses the raw device in calculating the actual
+disk usage for each user.
+Thus, the filesystems
+checked should be quiescent while
+.Nm quotacheck
+is running.
