Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

General UNIX file management commands

We see the following types of UNIX commands of the most value to the Oracle DBA:

* ls command – This is used to find files within a directory and display files according to dates.
* du command – This command quickly computes the used space within a UNIX directory.
* find command – The find command is great for generating list f UNIX files that meet specific time and size criteria.
* xargs and –exec commands – These commands allow you to pass a list of file name to a generic command such as the rm command.

The above is an excerpt from the "Oracle UNIX Administration Handbook" by Oracle press, authored by Donald K. Burleson.
