How can I check my hard disk usage in Linux?

Janeiro 30th, 2018

Once you are connected to the server via SSH, run the following command:
  • df -h
This will output the usage of each partition in the server. To list the size of a specific directory, run the following command:
  • du -sh /home/
If you want to list all the subdirectory sizes under /home, run the following command:
  • du -sh /home/*

The output of the ‘df’ command will show you overall disk usage. To find out how much space a give directory is used us the ‘du -s ‘ command.
