Arrow Journaled quota in CentOS 6.5


Hi everyone,
I am having this issue while trying to enable quotas on a file system:
Code:
[root@centos ~]# quotacheck -avug
quotacheck: Your kernel probably supports journaled quota but you are not using it. Consider switching to journaled quota to avoid running quotacheck after an unclean shutdown.
I've already taken a look at a few sites to know what journaled quotas are and how to enable them. However, I still have the following questions:
1) How can I find out whether my current kernel supports journaled quota or not? (I need to know this in advance in order to enable quotas accordingly in /etc/fstab).
2) What is the following mount option used for?
Quote:
jqfmt=vfsv0
3) Do the quota database files need to be named aquota.user and aquota.group? Or they can be named whatever I want as long as I specify their location on the corresponding line in the /etc/fstab file?
4) Is the location of the quota database files relative to the file system? i.e., does
Code:
/dev/sda1 /home ext4 defaults,usrjquota=aquota.user,grpjquota=aquota.group,jqfmt=vfsv0 1 1
mean that aquota.group and aquota.user are located inside /home?
Thank you in advance.

If your kernel supports journaling file systems then it does.

jqfmt stands for "journal quota format": see 'man mount'.

No, you can adjust names with the usrjquota and grpjquota mount options: see 'man mount'.

AFAIK yes.
