How Do You Determine Why the quota System is Working?

Problem scenario
The grace period says "none". Clearly the grace period expired. The soft limit has been exceeded and maybe even the hard limit has exceeded. Files are still created. You would expect to see a "write failed…quota reached" or "quota exceeded" any time a user tried to create a new file or directory. What should you do?

Run this:

quotaon -ap
