Re: HDD Space

The command 'df -k' will show you the used and free space on all mounted filesystems.

To look at low level disk devices use 'disklabel -r ', substituting your disk device name for '' of course. The units shown by this command are 512 byte disk blocks.

Re: HDD Space


You can use df -k to check the hdd space in tru64 unix.

If the filesystem is AdvFS then go to /etc/fdmns. Look into the individual directories. It will give you a clear picture of individual hdds associated with file domains.

This will help you to get a better picture of disk space usage when multiple filesets are assigned to the same file domain.

However for UFS filesystems the df -k command will give you the result straightaway.

df command also gives a similar o/p. Only difference is it shows results on 512 byte size calculation and df -k shows in 1024byte size calculation.

Re: HDD Space

And to answer your "sam"-question, on Tru64 it's called sysman.
You can launch it towards any Xserver display with the command :

/usr/sbin/sms -display

Have fun,

Re: HDD Space

In TRU64 there is "sysman" which is something close to "sam". Difference between TRU64 an HPUX is that you have disk partitions in TRU64. You do not have to use LVM (like in HPUX) to use disk for more than one file system, you can partition the disk. Advfs file system is something specific for TRU64. It is very powerfull but may confuse beginers. LVM in TRU64 is much more powerfull than in HPUX but is also more complex.

Re: HDD Space

And if you want to make a nice report on all your disk storage connected and let the system tell you where it thinks there is some free space, download the latest sys_check from:
install it, and run

sys_check disk > disks.html
sys_check map > storage-map.html

to combine both

sys_check disk map > storage.html
