If you are not using disk quotas, make sure you mount all your
NFS filesystems with noquota. Alternatively, remove the calls
on quota from the initial login scripts.

The cause is probably one or more remote NFS filesystems which
are slow in responding. Something like "df -k" might give a
hint as to which ones, if there is excessive delay before some
of the status lines are output.

HEllo,
I have a few machines with 2.5.1 HW4/97
after I login to Ultra (64 megs of mem, 2 GB disk)
It takes long time until i see motd;
i traced that out and I found that 'quota' program is very slowwww
can anybody help what should I do to make it faster ?

hmmm that filesystem is using quota but it's local, not NFS filesystem.
Anyway, it seems quota is now fast. (thanks to Satan). I still don't know
why it was so slow. but ok.

1. Quotas : Format of quota.users & quota.groups ?

Hi,

I am running Linux-FT with kernel 1.2.13 and quota patches. I would like
to enable quotas in order to control memory usage by apps (I'm trying to
debug an app that keeps grabbing all system memory, preventing me from
typing kill).

In order to enable quotas, files called quota.users and quota.groups
need to be present in the root directory. The 'edquota'
program is supposed to be used to set these up, but it simply invokes vi,
expecting the user to know the file format. The man pages say that
the file format is 'inscrutable', but don't actually describe it anywhere!

Anyone know the correct format ?

Thanks in advance,

Steve
