Alas, there are so many good sites already that give you every kind of command line tip available for Linux. So why would I also post them? For absolutely no good reason that’s why!
I am betting you will have a better way, and that’s OK by me. Post it.
Here we go…
How can I see the top 10 largest directories in Linux? Try:
du -hsx * | sort -rh | head -10
Note the h option to sort may not work for you. This will give you human readable sizes.
How can I see what is using up my inodes? Try:
for i in `find . -type d `; do echo `ls -a $i | wc -l` $i; done | sort -n
