quota_nld - quota netlink message daemon
listens on netlink socket and processes received quota
warnings. By default quota_nld
forwards warning messages to both the
system's DBUS (so that the desktop manager can display a dialog) and the
last-accessed terminal of the user to whom each warning is directed. Either of
these destinations can be disabled with the -D
In the case of the user's terminal, quota messages about falling below the hard
and soft limits are not sent unless the -b
option is specified. In the
case of the DBUS, all quota messages are sent.
Note, that you have to enable the kernel support for sending quota messages over
netlink (in Filesystems->Quota menu).
