What is going to be the easiest way to find out how much disk space capacity has been utilized on a particular slice? For example, when I attempted this in a shell script, my syntax was as follows (to find the root partitions capacity):

SLICE1=`/bin/df -k|/bin/egrep "/^"|/bin/awk '{print $5}'`

Here I just used the output of a /bin/df -k and printed out the one value I was looking for. Should I simply pipe a df -k from the shell into my perl script, and trim up the output a bit, or is there a better way?

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience usually comes from bad judgement.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
