df - report file system disk space usage
df [OPTION]... [FILE]...
This manual page documents the GNU version of df. df displays the
amount of disk space available on the file system containing each file
name argument. If no file name is given, the space available on all
currently mounted file systems 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 file system, df shows the space available on that file
system rather than on the file system containing the device node (which
is always the root file system). This version of df cannot show the
space available on unmounted file systems, because on most kinds of
systems doing so requires very nonportable intimate knowledge of file
Show information about the file system on which each FILE resides, or
all file systems by default.
Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options
- -a, --all
include dummy file systems
- -B, --block-size=SIZE
use SIZE-byte blocks
- -h, --human-readable
print sizes in human readable format (e.g., 1K 234M 2G)
- -H, --si
likewise, but use powers of 1000 not 1024
- -i, --inodes
list inode information instead of block usage
- like --block-size=1K
- -l, --local
limit listing to local file systems
do not invoke sync before getting usage info (default)
- -P, --portability
use the POSIX output format
- --sync invoke sync before getting usage info
- -t, --type=TYPE
limit listing to file systems of type TYPE
- -T, --print-type
print file system type
- -x, --exclude-type=TYPE
limit listing to file systems not of type TYPE
- --help display this help and exit
output version information and exit
SIZE may be (or may be an integer optionally followed by) one of following:
kB 1000, K 1024, MB 1000*1000, M 1024*1024, and so on for G, T,
