How to see file system disk usage from command line in Linux

In this video we cover the df command. DF reportsĀ file system disk space usage. DF differs from du because it looks at the file system and not files or directories.

We look at the man page for df and then we do some examples and what the output means

df -a

Df human readable

Use DF to check inodes

df -i

Show only local filesystems

df -hl
