Getting All User Quota Data With Zmprov

To get quota stats, run. The output is a little bit difficult to read since it's in bytes:

zmprov gqu `zmhostname`

This will display in bytes- first column is usage, second column is max quota (0=unlimited), third column will be the account :

zmprov gqu `zmhostname`|awk {'print " "$3" "$2" "$1'}

Here's a script to put into user readable format below [by Tony P.]. You'll need to modify the $hostname variable near the top:


my $hostname = localhost;

my @quotas = `zmprov gqu $hostname`;

foreach my $quotaline(@quotas)



my ($email, $quota, $usage) = split(' ', $quotaline);



print "$email - $usage\n";


sub utils_convert_bytes_to_optimal_unit{

my($bytes) = @_;

return '' if $bytes eq '';

my $size;

$size = $bytes . ' Bytes' if $bytes < 1024;

$size = sprintf("%.2f", $bytes/1024) . ' KB' if $bytes >= 1024 && $bytes < 1048576;

$size = sprintf("%.2f", $bytes/1048576) . ' MB' if $bytes >= 1048576 && $bytes < 1073741824;

$size = sprintf("%.2f", $bytes/1073741824) . ' GB' if $bytes >= 1073741824 && $bytes < 1099511627776;

$size = sprintf("%.2f", $bytes/1099511627776) . ' TB' if $bytes >= 1099511627776;

return $size;
