Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

Display total file space in a directory

Here is a handy UNIX command to display the total file spaces in any UNIX directory. In the example below, we went to the $ORACLE_HOME directory and issued the du –sk command. Here we see that the $ORACLE_HOME directory consumes 1450K, or about 1.4 gigabytes of disk space.

root> du -sk .
1450 .

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