DF(1)                        BSD Reference Manual                        DF(1)

NAME

     df - display free disk space

SYNOPSIS

     df [-iklnP] [-t type] [[file | filesystem] ...]

DESCRIPTION

     The df utility displays statistics about the amount of free disk space on
     the specified filesystem or on the filesystem of which file is a part. By
     default, values are displayed as 512-byte block counts. If neither a file
     nor a filesystem operand is specified, statistics for all mounted
     filesystems are displayed (subject to the -l and -t options below).

     The options are as follows:

     -i      Include statistics on the number of free inodes.

     -k      By default, all sizes are reported in 512-byte block counts. The
             -k option causes the numbers to be reported in kilobyte counts.

     -l      Display statistics only about mounted filesystems with the
             MNT_LOCAL flag set. If a non-local filesystem is given as an ar-
             gument, a warning is issued and no information is given on that
             filesystem.

     -n      Print out the previously obtained statistics from the filesys-
             tems. This option should be used if it is possible that one or
             more filesystems are in a state such that they will not be able
             to provide statistics without a long delay. When this option is
             specified, df will not request new statistics from the filesys-
             tems, but will respond with the possibly stale statistics that
             were previously obtained.

     -P      Print out information in a stricter format designed to be parsed
             by portable scripts.

     -t type
             Indicate the actions should only be taken on filesystems of the
             specified type. More than one type may be specified in a comma-
             separated list. The list of filesystem types can be prefixed with
             "no" to specify the filesystem types for which action should not
             be taken. If a filesystem is given on the command line that is
             not of the specified type, a warning is issued and no information
             is given on that filesystem.

ENVIRONMENT

     BLOCKSIZE  If the environment variable BLOCKSIZE is set, and the -k op-
                tions are not specified, the block counts will be displayed in
                units of that size block.

EXAMPLES

     $ df -kP /usr

     Output, in a strict format suitable for portable scripts, disk space
     statistics for the /usr filesystem using kilobyte block sizes.

DIAGNOSTICS

     The df utility exits with one of the following values:

     0     Successful completion.

     >0    An error occurred.
