Displaying Hard Disk Info.

Recommended Posts

Quick way to view your hdd stats.



[root@intmail root]# df -h


Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/md0 73G 2.8G 66G 4% /

none 504M 0 503M 0% /dev/shm



The -h is for "Human readable" basically tells us GB verse MB etc.


[root@intmail root]# df --help


This will display more information about the df command.

Just get my diskinfo script from http://www.thenerdshow.com/index.php?page=installation


It lists partitions underneath physical drives, so I don't get confused about which is which.


Like its predacessor df, it runs as a normal user. We don't need root. Run with -i for interactive.


Here it is called diskinfo but to save typing I secretly rename my copy to dl. :lol:


$ diskinfo -i
