CLI script to check account disk usage/quota from SSH

Feature Importer shared this idea 9 years ago
Open Discussion

As a Server Administrator, I want a CLI script to check account disk usage/quota from SSH, so that I can quickly monitor disk usage/quota from commandline


This would allow everyone a very easy way to check a sites disk usage/quota from SSH without having to jump into WHM to determine if a site is near/over quota

cPanel does quota calculation for accounts based on files owned by the user. To check the user's quota from command line just run this command. quota is a unix utility already included in the base Redhat/CentOS.


quota -su <cpanel username>

The most reliable way to check disk usage is to use new cPanel API:

uapi --user=USER Quota get_quota_info|grep -E 'limit|used'
