DU(1) DU(1) NAME du - summarize disk usage SYNOPSIS du [ -s ] [ -a ] [ name ... ] DESCRIPTION Du gives the number of kilobytes (kilo=1024) allocated to data blocks of named files and of named directories includ- ing (recursively) their contents. If name is missing, `.' is used. Option -s causes only the grand total to be given. Option -a causes an entry to be generated for each file. Absence of either causes an entry to be generated for each directory only. A file which has two links to it is counted only once. SEE ALSO df(1), quot(8) BUGS In the absence of option -a non-directories given as argu- ments are not listed. If there are too many distinct linked files, du counts the excess files multiply. Unwritten holes in files count as if real data were present, and indirect blocks are not counted.
