df - summarize free disk space


df [-aikPv] [-t fstype] [-x fstype] [--all] [--inodes] [--type=fstype] [--exclude-type=fstype] [--kilobytes] [--portability] [--print-type] [--help] [--version] [filename...]


This manual page documents the GNU version of df . df displays the amount of disk space available on the filesystem containing each file name argument. If no file name is given, the space available on all currently mounted filesystems is shown. Disk space is shown in 1K blocks by default, unless the environment variable POSIXLY_CORRECT is set, in which case 512-byte blocks are used.

If an argument is the absolute file name of a disk device node containing a mounted filesystem, df shows the space available on that filesystem rather than on the filesystem containing the device node (which is always the root filesystem). This version of df cannot show the space available on unmounted filesystems, because on most kinds of systems doing so requires very nonportable intimate knowledge of filesystem structures.


-a, --all
Include in the listing filesystems that have 0 blocks, which are omitted by default. Such filesystems are typically special-purpose pseudo-filesystems, such as automounter entries. On some systems, filesystems of type ``ignore'' or ``auto'' are also omitted by default and included in the listing by this option.

-i, --inodes
List inode usage information instead of block usage. An inode (short for ``index node'') is a special kind of disk block that contains information about a file, such as its owner, permissions, timestamps, and location on the disk.

-k, --kilobytes
Print sizes in 1K blocks instead of 512-byte blocks. This overrides the environment variable POSIXLY_CORRECT.

-P, --portability
Use the POSIX output format. This is like the default format except that the information about each filesystem is always printed on exactly one line; a mount device is never put on a line by itself. This means that if the mount device name is more than 20 characters long (as for some network mounts), the columns are misaligned.

-T, --print-type
Print a type string for each filesystem. Any such printed filesystem type name may be used as an argument to either of the --type= or --exclude-type= options.

-t, --type=fstype
Limit the listing to filesystems of type fstype . Multiple filesystem types can be shown by giving multiple -t options. By default, all filesystem types are listed.

-x, --exclude-type=fstype
Limit the listing to filesystems not of type fstype . Multiple filesystem types can be eliminated by giving multiple -x options. By default, all filesystem types are listed.
