Keeping within Disk Space Limits

What is the best way to check how much space I am already using?

There are two ways to check disk usage:

  1. At the command prompt type quota
    % quota
    
    Disk quotas for user USERNAME (uid UID): Filesystem blocks quota limit grace files quota limit grace /usr 1558 28160 25600 358 2750 2500 ^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^ ^^^^ # blocks Block # files File used limit used limit

     

  2. At the command prompt type vdiskuse
    This will show a byte usage for all of the directories under the current working directory (similar to the UNIX du command).

    To check the space of a specific subhost, you can enter the path of the subhosts's directory. For example:

      vdiskuse ~/www/htdocs/vhosts/[subhost-directory]

    If you are inside the [subhost-directory] you just type "vdiskuse"
