    Unanswered: df command

    I am on AIX 4.3. In an attempt to find the amount of space I have, i did a

    df .

    And I got

    Filesystem 512-blocks Free %Used Iused %Iused Mounted on
    /dev/bchome_lv 2097152 1966000 7% 1788 1% /home/biochem

    What does the 1966000 mean ? I mean, in what unit is it ? Bytes, kilobytes or megabytes ?

    Thanks

    the answer is coming from finnland

    With no arguments or options, the df command displays the amount of free disk space on all of the mounted file systems. For each file system, the df command reports the file system's configured size in 512-byte blocks, unless you specify the -k option, which reports the size in kilobyte blocks. The command displays the total amount of space, the amount presently used, the amount presently available (free), the percentage used, and the directory on which the file system is mounted.

    Re:

    Try the "bdf" command also. I dont know if it'll work on AIX but does on HP-UX. man bdf gives good info on other options in bdf.

    thanks..

    Try "man df", you'll see the parameter "-k" for a display in kilobyte.
