How quotas with multiple users work

When you put multiple users in the same quota target, the quota limits defined by that quota are not applied to each individual user; in this case, the quota limits are shared among all users listed in the quota target.

Note: If you combine separate user quotas into one multi-user quota, you can activate the change by resizing quotas. However, if you want to remove users from a quota target with multiple users, or add users to a target that already has multiple users, you must reinitialize quotas before the change takes effect.

Example of more than one user in a quotas file entry

In the following example, there are two users listed in the quota entry:
#Quota       target type    disk files thold sdisk sfile
#----------  ----           ---- ----- ----- ----- -----

The two users can use up to 80 MB of space combined. If one uses 75 MB, then the other one can use only 5 MB.
