pydf — report colourised filesystem disk space usage


pydf [options] [file]


pydf is a python script that displays the amount of disk space available on the mounted filesystems, using different colours for different types of filesystems. Output format is completely customizable.

If an optional
file argument is given, pydf displays just information about filesystem containing the file(s), otherwise it displays information about all mounted filesystems.


Show summary of options.
-v, --version
Show version of program.
-a, --all
include filesystems having 0 blocks
-h, --human-readable
print sizes in human readable format (e.g., 133K 2341M 2448G)
-H, --si
likewise, but use powers of 1000 not 1024
use SIZE-byte blocks
-k, --kilobytes
like --block-size=1024
-i, --inodes
show information about inodes instead of blocks
-l, --local
limit listing to local filesystems
-m, --megabytes
like --block-size=1048576
-g, --gigabytes
like --block-size=1073741824
use filesystem native block size
do not use colours
file to get mount information from. On normal linux system, only /etc/mtab or /proc/mounts make sense. Use /proc/mounts when /etc/mtab is corrupted or inaccessible (the output looks a bit weird in this case though)
-B, --show-binds
Show also mount --bind mounted filesystems.


When running with python3, mountpoints with out-of-locale non ASCII names will not be displayed (due to inability of os.statvfs to use bytes instead of strings).
