You can display the size of directories by using the du command and options. Additionally, you can find the amount of disk space used by user accounts on local UFS file systems by using the quot command. For more information about these commands, see the du(1) and quot(1M) man pages.
$ du [-as] [directory ...]
Displays the size of each directory that you specify, including each subdirectory beneath it.
Displays the size of each file and subdirectory, and the total number of blocks that are contained in the specified directory.
Displays the total number of blocks that are contained in the specified directory.
Displays the size of each directory in 1024–byte blocks.
Displays the size of each directory in 1000–byte blocks.
Identifies one or more directories that you want to check. Separate multiple directories in the command-line syntax with spaces.
Example 6-9 Displaying the Size of Directories, Subdirectories, and Files
The following example shows the sizes of two directories.
$ du -s /var/adm /var/spool/lp 130 /var/adm 40 /var/spool/lp
The following example shows the sizes of two directories and includes the sizes of all the subdirectories and files that are contained within each directory. The total number of blocks that are contained in each directory is also displayed.
$ du /var/adm /var/spool/lp 2 /var/adm/exacct 2 /var/adm/log 2 /var/adm/streams 2 /var/adm/acct/fiscal 2 /var/adm/acct/nite 2 /var/adm/acct/sum 8 /var/adm/acct 2 /var/adm/sa 2 /var/adm/sm.bin 258 /var/adm 4 /var/spool/lp/admins 2 /var/spool/lp/requests/printing.... 4 /var/spool/lp/requests 4 /var/spool/lp/system 2 /var/spool/lp/fifos 24 /var/spool/lp
The following example shows directory sizes in 1024–byte blocks.
$ du -h /usr/share/audio 796K /usr/share/audio/samples/au 797K /usr/share/audio/samples 798K /usr/share/audio
Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.
# quot [-a] [filesystem ...]
Lists all users of each mounted UFS file system and the number of 1024-byte blocks used.
Identifies a UFS file system. Users and the number of blocks used are displayed for that file system.
Note - The quot command works only on local UFS file systems.
