Tomáš Pospíšek's Notizblock
Every now and then you find out that some server's disk is full. Now what? You want some programm that will show you visually where most of the disk space is spent in your filesystem.
Is a GUI app and full of bugs wrt to disk scanning and these are not getting fixed:
scanning a remote server is possible, however exclude patterns do not seem to apply
filelight is following symlinks. I had a filesystem that had:
/usr/bin/X11 -> /usr/bin
which is evidently recursive and filelight is unable to handle that (overflow)
it's very slow when scanning remote machines
slow when scanning remote machines
it doesn't seem to be possible to exclude directories or files
Ncurses UI. Blidingly fast. Yay!
