script bdf /mount_point with certain percentage usage and then do certain action

Dear All Unix masters,

I have script below:
bdf /u11|awk '{print $5}'|tail -1|cut -c 1-2

How to improve the above script if /u11 reach 75% usage then do the following actions:
a)mailx to certain list mail address
b)move all file in /u11 to the temporary mount point

Please help.Many thanks.

There is a great script that I have attached that does what your asking for, the author of the script is Bill Hassell, so the points should be for him

Hi Zap,

Please find attached file contained the require script. Attached script search all mounted file system above 90%.

a) mailx to certain list mail address - included
b) Move all file in /u11 to the temporary mount point - files move as per size, subject or extension. ?

Hope this will help you.

I wrote a script as other friends did here, it can meet your requirements, if directory usage reach a defined value it will delete file you stated; before deletion check ,if it is open ,and close it to prevent possible corruption.
It is good for Solaris , but I do think ,,you can easily midfy for HP-UX. and beside do not forget to set ref=75 ..
