quota displays quotas for NFS mounted UFS- or ZFS-based file systems if
the rquotad daemon is running. See rquotad(8). In a zones(7) environment,
quota displays quotas only for the zone in which it is invoked.

quota can display entries for the same file system multiple times for
multiple mount points. For example,

# quota -v user1

might display identical quota information for user1 at the mount points
/home/user1, /home/user2, and /home/user, if all three mount points are
mounted from the same file system with quotas turned on.
