I wrote a quota replacement for our system as I deemed the output
from the supplied programs to be totally useless for non-unix
people, a lot of whom use our server through samba. It also has
an option to output as html which enables it to be run as a CGI
script for those users who never need to login to the server.
It has a number of other features which are very specific to our
environment, but the guts of it are probably useful if you were
thinking of writing your own. It has no support for inode quotas,
as I have no interest in them. Also, for some of its functions
to work, it runs setuid root and I won't claim it is safe against
security break-ins (which I don't care about as I let all my
users know the root password anyway so if they wanted to, they
have a much easier way to do damage, not that anyone ever has).
I won't claim it's pretty (it grew over a long time...), but I'm
happy to make the source available if there's any interest.
