       fs_diskfree - Shows data about the partition housing a directory or


       fs diskfree [-path <dir/file path>+] [-help]

       fs df [-p <dir/file path>+] [-h]

       fs di [-p <dir/file path>+] [-h]


       The fs diskfree command formats and displays information about the
       partition that houses the volume containing the specified directory or
       file, including its size and how much space is currently used.

       To display information about the volume itself, use the fs examine
       command. The fs examine and fs quota commands also display information
       about a volume.


       The partition-related statistics in this command’s output do not always
       agree with the corresponding values in the output of the standard UNIX
       df command. The statistics reported by this command can be up to five
       minutes old, because the Cache Manager polls the File Server for
       partition information at that frequency. Also, on some operating
       systems, the df command’s report of partition size includes reserved
       space not included in this command’s calculation, and so is likely to
       be about 10% larger.


       -path <dir/file path>+
           Names a file or directory that resides on the partition about which
           to produce output. Partial pathnames are interpreted relative to
           the current working directory, which is also the default value if
           this argument is omitted.

           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
           are ignored.


       The output reports the following information about the volume and
       partition that houses each file or directory:

       Volume Name
           The name of the volume.

           The partition’s total size in kilobytes.

           The number of kilobytes used on the partition.

           The number of kilobytes available on the partition.

           The percentage of the partition’s total space that is used (the
           "used" statistic divided by the "kbytes" statistic, times 100).

       If the %used statistic is greater than 90%, it is marked with the
       string "<<WARNING" at the right margin.

       If the volume is a read-only volume, the output includes information
       about only one of the partitions that houses it, generally the one on
       the file server machine with the lowest preference rank. To verify
       which machine the output is referring to, use the vos listvldb command
       to list the volume’s locations, and the vos partinfo command to display
       the size of each one.


       The following example shows the output for the partitions housing the
       volumes "user.smith" and "sun4x_56.bin":

          % fs diskfree -path /afs/ /afs/
          Volume Name     kbytes  used     avail     %used
          user.smith     4177920 3841258  336662       92% <<WARNING
          sun4x_56.bin   4423680 3174500 1249180       72%


       The issuer must have the "r" (read) permission on the ACL of the root
       directory of the volume that houses the file or directory named by the
       -path argument, and "l" (list) permission on the ACL of each directory
       that precedes it in the pathname.
