can you elaborate? i dont know if your talking about quotas, or if your talking about how much memory a user is sucking up from all their processes, or how much space the users files use up, or maybe its none of these.....someone may know what your talking about off hand, but i don't have an idea, so if possible please elaborate...

or even

ps -aux

well maybe if you run top in the terminal you will see in one of the leftmost columns who the user is (UID) and then when you look directly across to one of the right most columns you'll see the memory percentage(%MEM) the user is using with a particular program/process, or whatever it may be...
