Below is the linux command i use to get user quota
$ sudo -u lospsr quota | tail -n1
                1045124* 200000 3000000   6days      45       0       0

and below command i will use to know when the user exceeded the quota
$ sudo -u lospsr quota | tail -n1 | awk '{print $1}'
1045124*
$

please provide me the command where i want only number(means the awk should be able to cut the "*"), i don't want "*" at the end of the number in the output, because my other script that uses this command doens't understand "*"

Few possibilities:
1. sudo -u lospsr quota | tail -n1 | awk '{print gensub(/*/, "", "", $1)}'
2. sudo -u lospsr quota | awk '/[0-9]day|EXPIRED/ {print gensub(/*/, "", "", $1)}'
3. sudo -u lospsr quota | tail -n1 | awk '{print $1}' | tr -d "*"
4. sudo -u lospsr quota | sed '$!d;s/\s*\([0-9]\+\).*/\1/'

And a lot more possibilities :)
