Check disk usage

January7

To check out the amount of space being used by any part of the filesystem, use the du command.

sudo du -h --max-depth=1 /var/log

This dispalys the amount of disk space used in /var/log and by which files, but only for that depth in the folder hierarchy. It should give you an output like this..


224K	/var/log/clamav
8,0K	/var/log/dspam
4,0K	/var/log/news
8,0K	/var/log/dbconfig-common
8,0K	/var/log/fsck
4,0K	/var/log/sysstat
68K	/var/log/apt
4,0K	/var/log/mysql
11M	/var/log/setuid
4,0K	/var/log/ntpstats
4,0K	/var/log/chkrootkit
67M	/var/log

I used to run Click Technology from 1995 to 2010.  Now no longer, I maintain the site with things I find interesting or are noteworthy or have some handy-tip value.
