/nfs home directory
You can find the total size of your /nfs home directory by typing:
% du -skh ~alc
where ~alc is your home directory. The home directory quota is 10 Gbyte by default. I just looked, and I am using 7.4 Gbyte, so it's getting close to full!
Note added 24-May-2021: to get the total in Mbyte, you can type:
% du -m .
/lustre home directory
To find how much of your /lustre directory you are using, type:
% lfs quota /lustre/scratch108/parasites/alc/
where /lustre/scratch108/parasites/alc/ is the /lustre directory.
Thanks to Tim Cutts for this info.
Finding the largest directories
% du --max-depth=1 | sort -k1,1nr | more
Sort files in a directory by size
% ls -alS | more
This doesn't seem to work for subdirectories.
Check how much space is available on a disk:
% df -h .
