DOVEADM-QUOTA(1)                    Dovecot                   DOVEADM-QUOTA(1)

       doveadm-quota - Initialize/recalculate or show current quota usage

       doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] quota [-S socket_path] command
       doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] quota [-S socket_path] command -A
       doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] quota [-S socket_path] command -F file
       doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] quota [-S socket_path] command -u user

       In the first form, doveadm(1) will execute the command for the currently logged in user.

       In the second form, the command will be performed for all users.

       In the third form, the command will be performed for all users listed in the given file.

       In the fourth form, the command will affect only the matching user(s).

       Note:  The quota get and quota recalc commands are only available when the global mail_plugins setting contains
              the quota plugin.

       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -f formatter
              Specifies the formatter for formatting the output.  Supported formatters are:

              flow   prints each line with key=value pairs.

              pager  prints each key: value pair on its own line and separates records with form feed character  (^L).

              tab    prints a table header followed by tab separated value lines.

              table  prints a table header followed by adjusted value lines.

       -o setting=value
              Overrides  the  configuration  setting from /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf and from the userdb with the given
              value.  In order to override multiple settings, the -o option may be specified multiple times.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       Command specific options:

       -A     If the -A option is present, the command will be performed for all users.  Using this option in combina-
              tion  with  system  users  from  userdb { driver = passwd } is not recommended, because it contains also
              users with a lower UID than the one configured with the first_valid_uid setting.

              When the SQL userdb module is used make  sure  that  the  iterate_query  setting  in  /etc/dovecot/dove-
              cot-sql.conf.ext  matches  your  database layout.  When using the LDAP userdb module, make sure that the
              iterate_attrs and iterate_filter settings in /etc/dovecot/dovecot-ldap.conf.ext match your LDAP  schema.
              Otherwise doveadm(1) will be unable to iterate over all users.

       -F file
              Execute  the  command  for  all the users in the file.  This is similar to the -A option, but instead of
              getting the list of users from the userdb, they are read from the given file.   The  file  contains  one
              username per line.

       -S socket_path
              The  option's  argument is either an absolute path to a local UNIX domain socket, or a hostname and port
              (hostname:port), in order to connect a remote host via a TCP socket.

              This allows an administrator to execute doveadm(1) mail commands through the given socket.

       -u user/mask
              Run the command only for the given user.  It's also possible to use  '*'  and  '?'  wildcards  (e.g.  -u
              When  neither  the -A option, nor the -F file option, nor the -u user was specified, the command will be
              executed with the environment of the currently logged in user.

   quota get
       doveadm [-f formatter] quota get [-A|-u user|-F file]

       The quota get command is used to display the current quota usage.  The storage values  are  reported  in  kilo-

       This command uses by default the output formatter table.

   quota recalc
       doveadm quota recalc [-A|-u user|-F file]

       The quota recalc command is used to recalculate the current quota usage.

              Dovecot's main configuration file, including the dict section.

              SQL dictionary proxy settings.

              Mailbox locations and namespaces, including global mail_location

              Quota configuration.

       Get the current quota usage of user jane.

       doveadm quota get -u jane
       Quota name                        Type    Value  Limit  %
       user                              STORAGE 90099 102400 87
