dispus 2.9

A PERL script for browsing directories and figuring out where space is being used on a UNIX system. It is aware of mount points and will not include other filesystems in the listings.

Previously called dusage.pl, I renamed it as there were a couple of other scripts out there with that name. The new name is a contraction of disk space usage, and is apparently also Romanian for “ready” or “willing”.

It has been tested on Sun Solaris 2.5.1 – 10, SCO OpenServer, SCO UnixWare, Linux, MacOS X, Cygwin, AIX, FreeBSD 5.5 Stable and HP-UX (11.11, 11.23, 11.31). If you run it successfully (or unsuccessfully) on another operating system, please let me know.

It was featured on in the November 2003 Shell Corner column at UnixReview.com. (Link is now broken, however it’s available on the Wayback Machine).

ncdu (NCurses Disk Usage) is another very nice tool that does a similar job.
